Well... I finally got it in the mail today through the book club The Seniorita registered us for... That, and "Unfinished Tales of Numenor and Middle-Earth," though I think I'll save that one for after I get through The Hobbit and the Rings trilogy... But I'm committed to finally getting these books under my belt...
I understand the Silmarillion is a teriffic story in itself. Looking forward to it.
