Gift Giving: Paperweights or Precious Objets d'Art?
The really cool thing is that there are literally thousands of paperweights (possibly even millions since they've been around since the about the 1800s), in all shapes and sizes - apples, hearts, flowers, stars, squares, circles, diamonds, egg-shaped, etc. Plus paperweights can be personalized. Also, some paperweights are quite valuable.
Anyone who has done even scant research on John Ronald Reuel Tolkien (1892 - 1973) knows that even though he was a very private man, there is no shortage of biographical information about this famous British writer and medievalist. Hardcover, paperback, digital and audio books, letters, and other materials abound.
