I’ve been working my way through the Lord of the Rings novels, and as part of the very elaborate process, I’ve also been rewatching the movies. I saw them all when they originally came out, but never read the books then. I did, however, collect bookmarks. I think they were available at my school’s library–the memory has gone a little vague. But I collected them some ten years ago, and haven’t much thought about them since.
However. While I had never read the books, my dad had them, so they were in my house. And in my typical, over-organized fashion, where else would I store LOTR bookmarks…but in copies of LOTR? So in the course of reading the books (those same copies that were sitting there all along) I’ve also unearthed the bookmarks.
I somehow don’t have the set from Fellowship, but I do have Two Towers and Return of the King…
My one regret here…no Faramir bookmark. He gets more screentime in the Extended Edition and…I just love him (this scene!) Ah well…aside from that, I’ve quite enjoyed rediscovering a collection I all but forgot I had. 🙂
