The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings book sets are on sale for half price

Here’s an offer for anyone who has room for a box set on their shelf. Right now, Amazon is offering a pair of four-book sets containing The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogy for more than half the price. You can pick up the pocket set for $14.74 or the deluxe set for $27.91. Either way, you’re saving a good chunk of change on a set of great books.

Alternatively, if you want to grab the Illustrated Edition of The Lord of the Rings, which was released late last year, you can grab it for almost half as well.

The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings: Deluxe Pocket Boxed Adjust

The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings box set

The deluxe box contains paperback versions of the books with a height of 5.9 inches. It’s quite small – about the size of a traditional mass-market paperback. The text is also quite cramped on the page. That said, it’s readable, and it’s easy to hold.

Each of the four novels features a soft leatherette cover with the title affixed to it. They are also housed in a leatherette bound box with gold leaf stamping.

If you’re wondering about the size or quality of the binding, take a look at the reviews on the Amazon page. You will find many photos and videos uploaded by people who purchased the set.

The paperback set includes all four books with complementary covers, housed in a cardboard presentation box. As for the books themselves, you get The Hobbit, The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King. They are timeless classics that you may have read at least once. But if you’re looking for a new set of matching books, you might as well grab them when they’re more than halfway down.
