X is for X Marks the Spot (A to Z on Tolkien and the Inklings)

X is for X marks the spot!

Not strictly Inklings-related, but a recap of some Tolkien travel-related places I've visited, in Switzerland, England, and Italy.

Lauterbrunnen is widely thought to be the inspiration for Rivendell.

Speaking of books, here's what I got at the Library in English book sale!


And just a couple of days ago at a lunchtime book sale hosted by the staff association of the World Meterological Organization:

Hi Deniz - that tree is definitely a goodly hiding place .. and such a fun looking tree - it lives on ... while your books - gosh how fortunate you have access to these sorts of books - without searching for them.

Your visits to Tolkien's areas of delight ... are lovely to see and so good you've been able to get to see them ... cheers Hilary

I think I am ready for the A-Z challenge to be over! It has been fun and I've learned but trying to have a new post every day is getting old--besides there have been other things I've wanted to write about. I appreciate learning more about the Inklings. Thanks.

Looks like a great haul of books! I think the only "trouble" with getting so many books all at once is trying to decide which one to read first :-)

Thanks all! It *is* nice to have reached the end of the A to Z -- it's fun to look back!
