      I think he did own a paperback copy, but was trying to catch my

      Between office, home, and daughter's room, we probably own about seven
      sets now. I think I now own copies of just about everything except a
      few volumes of the History of Middle-earth (I even have photocopies of
      the early poems published in the Leeds University Verse 1914-1924), my
      most recent acquisition being the 1995 edition of the Father Christmas
      letters with the envelopes containing reproductions of the letters.

      What, he didn't already own a copy?

      I've only ever checked out two books by Tolkien from libraries in my
      life, I think. (The Adventures of Tom Bombadil, immediately after first
      reading LOTR and before discovering I could get it in The Tolkien
      and Beowulf and the Critics, which I haven't shelled out for yet.)
      Everything else I've bought, usually immediately.
