AOL is having a poll to determine which book they will name the “Book of the Century.” Now, being an ex-market researcher who was in charge of survey design, I know these guys have rigged the poll. They put Tolkien on there twice. But even if we total both The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings up, he is still being beaten by Stephen King’s The Stand. Something must be done! Head on over there now and vote.
In 2016, a Christmas poem by Tolkien written in 1936 was discovered at a school in Abingdon, Oxfordshire, UK. Read and listen to it for the first time!
