Product Description

All three parts of the epic masterpiece combined in one definitive edition of the text.

Sauron, the Dark Lord, has gathered to him all the Rings of Power - the means by which he intends to rule Middle-earth. All he lacks in his plans for dominion is the One Ring - the ring that rules them all - which has fallen into the hands of the hobbit, Bilbo Baggins. In a sleepy village in the Shire, young Frodo Baggins finds himself faced with an immense task, as the Ring is entrusted to his care. He must leave his home and make a perilous journey across the realms of Middle-earth to the Crack of Doom, deep inside the territories of the Dark Lord. There he must destroy the Ring forever and foil the Dark Lord in his evil purpose. Since it was first published in 1954, The Lord of the Rings has been a book people have treasured. Steeped in unrivalled magic and otherworldliness, its sweeping fantasy has touched the hearts of young and old alike.

And there's no "check Facebook 1 million times" in perseverance, right? :-)

Great perseverance quote. Here are some more I saw on Goodreads:

"Giving up is the only sure way to fail." ~ Gena Showalter

"You know what I did after I wrote my first novel? I shut up and wrote 23 more." ~ Michael Connelly

"If you can quit, then quit. If you can't quit, you're a writer." ~ R.A. Salvatore

Ahh, I love the one by Michael Connelly. It's sure hard to do. Pulling my hair out right now over a gigantic epic fantasy MS. *grinds teeth* Why do I tackle such difficult and complex story-lines so early in my writer experiences? (rhetorical)
