Reserved a copy of this book on the library website, only realizing when I picked it up that it was the Illustrated and heavy as a textbook edition.  Couldn’t really take it anywhere with me due to the weight, so bedtime reading it became.  This was my second time reading this, so I was able to pick up new details from the lengthy descriptions Tolkien gives – anyone else notice that every time you re-read a book you pick up new details and things you missed? 

I think I will try to pick up the next two in the series in normal paperback format… :)
