Book shopping!!

As many would know, I am a very big fan of Tolkien and the things related to that wonderful and amazing genius of a man!

As many would not know, his books were the ones that held me together when I was going through my bouts of severe depression! He gave me worlds into which I could escape into... a world where I didn't need to worry about fitting in or being one in a crowd!

So, it was quite a disastrous affair when I lost my copy of "The Lord of the Rings" seven years ago! Sure, it was a "pirated" edition (the only edition I could afford back then). But somehow, I never actually bought another copy. Instead, I treasured my other Tolkien books (Silmarillion - my all time favorite and Unfinished Tales) with my life! I never lent out these beauties to anyone! And so, they stood the test of time and are still with me.

I managed to get a copy of "The Hobbit" (The first book of Tolkien that I ever read!) and so, I just needed LoTR to fill the gap.

Well, now that I have a job and am earning enough to buy an occassional book, I've ordered me a copy from Flipkart.com.

I've been hitting the refresh button of their track order page every three minutes, hoping to finally see the message "Out for Delivery"... well, that was three days ago! Soooooooo.... the day has finally come! I just received a message stating that I shall get my book before seven tonight!

I can hardly contain my joy here! And I might just tear up a little when I see the book... only true fans of the series would understand the feeling! So yes, here I am, hoping to find my parcel reach my doorstep any moment now!
