the spoils of the day

Many thanks to the many Laytons, Holcombes, and Racheds, and assorted friends who gifted me the following:

Christmas may be a dangerous time to be in London, but it’s a fantastic (and Amazing. Extraordinary, quite extraordinary) time to be a geek.

Did anyone else receive anything fun?

That's an awesome assortment of books! Now that the move is (mostly) behind me, I look forward to having time to READ again.

What a lovely haul! Tolkien and the Great War is such a great book!

My geekish gifts this year were the super-duper blu-ray Extra EE of LOTR, and the soundtrack for TH:DOS. (I also got the soundtrack of TH:AUJ, because the DH forgot that he already gave it to me last year. I will probably return it for credit, and add enough to get the EE of TH:AUJ DVD on blu-ray.)

I've never read it, and I love me some well-done Tolkien nonfiction. I was very slightly disappointed that I didn't score Peoples of Middle-earth which I'd love to own, but only very. How can you focus on what you don't have when you do have so much?

You'll have to tell me what you think of the AUV extended version. Both the added scenes and the special features. I have an electronic copy of the film through Amazon's online videos, but not the extended. To be honest, I've been a bit reticent to give PJ more of my money; it just doesn't feel like the same world I fell in love with and so I'm simply not as excited about it as I'd like to be. But if you think the EV is good, I'll definitely consider it.
