We issued a new #TolkienCollection photo challenge on Monday, and we’re already getting photos! The theme for this week’s challenge is Half and Half, and we love seeing what people come up with! @djy1935 had a perfect idea–she shared a picture of The Lord of the Rings books alongside the LOTR films! @DimeryMichaels went a different way by showing us a photo with two of her old Tolkien books and two of her shiny new ones!
You know what? We’re going to find a way to make every photo from yesterday fall into the “Half and Half” category. Take the photos from @radenam on Instagram. Those are obviously two halves of a recent Tolkien haul! Then we have @simooneg’s photo of two versions of The One Ring; one is from The Hobbit and one is from The Lord of the Rings! And finally, we have the picture by @abdul_alhazred90 (and by the looks of things, it’s his first post on Instagram, so give him a hearty #TolkienCollection welcome). He showed us his copy of The Return of the Shadow (El retorno de la Sombra), and it wouldn’t be complete without a map of Middle-earth!
