Happy birthday, Silmarillion!

Yesterday, The Silmarillion turned 40! Wow!

When J. R. R. Tolkien died, the Silmarillion was still unfinished. But then Christopher Tolkien, His son, finished the Silmarillion.

Thanks to this wonderful book, such wonderful stories such as Beren and Luthien and Children of Hurin have been published and loved.

Happy Belated birthday, The Silmarillion.

Now, what are you all waiting for? Grab the Silmarillion from your bookshelf, and read a chapter or two.
