He did indeed. I've always been glad that the books were a success while he was alive.

Me too! I'm really hoping it ends up as good as LOTR did :-)

"To the Professor!"

Lovely image for the post dear! His own illustrations for his work are so charming.

I'm listening to the Hobbit book-on-cd. Is it his birthday?

1892-1973? That's a long time.

Yes, he was 81 years old. The Professor was still alive when I first read LOTR in 1966, but I never got to meet him.
