Report on Tolkien's Diaries from the Cheltenham Festival of Literature Spring Weekend - Guardian Unlimited Reports on Literature Festival.

An interesting quote from Jon Andriessen, who works for the Guardian Unlimited regarding Tolkien's diaries.

Humphrey Carpenter dusted off his 25-year-old biography of JRR Tolkien in a topical celebration of the man behind the hobbits. He revealed that Tolkien had kept his diaries in Elvish. With the help of his wife, Carpenter eventually decoded them on the discovery of the phrase, "I gave up smoking for Lent."
