Unknown to me that it had been the Professor's birthday, I had snuggled into my couch today and started re-reading The Silmarillion.

Happy Birthday!

I am genuinely impressed!  RE-READ The Silmarillion?!?!?!  I couldn't even get through it once!!  But...that was many, many years ago.  Perhaps I should try again.

Yeah, every time I read it, I get about 100% more out of it then I got the last time. I am as giddy as a school boy starting Christmas break every time I borrow it from the library.
