What do you expect? I read The Hobbit, of course I’m going to go on to the whole Lord of the Rings. If I’m lucky, I’ll find something else to read before Unfinished Tales drops off the shelf on me.
I think I bought the current copy I have of this in an airport to deal with a long flight, possibly Beijing-Toronto, or something equally harrowing, but somewhere in the distant past where all books are lost, I had the black cover ones, including The Silmarillion. Anyway, St George’s has half a row of various editions, and I walked off with the large-format early-’90s prints. Almost finished the second one already.
