in the 1974 Allen & Unwin _Tolkien Calendar_ -- hoping, evidently, that the
elves Beleg and Gwindor would be mistaken for hobbits Merry and Pippin. Of

- Nah, all the pictures of the kids and grandkids are crowded at the front of the shelves. Plus a few unicorns, three shelves in the living room hold video tapes in drawers, some extra books (yep, double stacked)... And on top of the bookcases, my Star Wars and Babylon 5 12" collectable dolls (still in their cases to protect them)! And more books...
