I noticed that the user profile pages were not showing all the information you could add, so I adjusted a few things. You can see an example of what I threw together here:

Rowns user profile page

Feel free to use it if you like. When you are logged in, you can click on the Edit Account link in the left menu.

That's also where you can set if you want to receive emails from the site, which I will be testing soon for newsletter-style updates.

Thanks!

My parents had a set of '60s US hardcovers that I grew up reading. I picked up a set of paperbacks (the same 50th anniversary black paperbacks you've pictured, Gondor, with the Michael Herring artwork) in '87 and read them to death (though I do think I have them around here somewhere still). Now when I re-read I grab a set of paperbacks from the garage - it is interesting to read the various different editions, though I've never read closely enough to pick up on the minor changes amongst the various Ballantine editions, for example. I still get a warm fuzzy feeling going back and reading one of the blue cloth hardcovers, though...

In regards to the Michael Herring art - I was offered the original artwork back about a year ago (it is still available online if you dig a little bit) and found myself feeling not at all interested. My least favorite of the Ballantine paperback artwork, and I was quite surprised at how long they lasted...

I have to agree with you. Though if you look carefully at the two penultimate pictures (the three windows and the bookshelves) you can see that a significant portion of the house is under ground level, so at least they made an effort. And the comment under the circular door photo mentioned also needing a standard door to conform to code, so perhaps a fully underground house would have some code issues with roofing or walls or some-such.

There is a separate article focusing more on the owner than the house in the news section of TCG, here.

By the way, welcome to the site!

I got a chuckle out of this "Tollkien" signed book...
