I took my three LotR paperbacks along on vacation - I find that I always enjoy rereading them, finding something new and fresh each time. And I did take notes for good themes and posting ideas for the Downs! [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] For just sheer reading enjoyment, the book itself beats all the reference material, IMO.
'Mercy!' cried Gandalf. 'If the giving of information is to be the cure of your inquisitiveness, I shall spend all the rest of my days in answering you. What more do you want to know?' 'The whole history of Middle-earth...'

I would recommend you to take The Hobbit, LOTR and The Silmarillion with you. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]
If you don´t have space enough for all those, then I suggest you choose yourself. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]
Jag ska aldrig göra dig illa. Inte igen. Åtminstone inte mycket, åtminstone inte hårt. Kommer du ihåg? Då vi fortfarande kunde skratta, le på ett äkta vis. Jag tänker på det ibland. Det smärtar. För aldrig har du väl varit. Längre bort. Från mig.
