Lord Of The Rings Book Box Sets Drop To Low Prices For Black Friday

Expand your knowledge of Middle-earth with these Amazon Black Friday deals on The Lord of the Rings saga.


A litany of JRR Tolkien books are discounted in Amazon's Black Friday sale, including multiple editions of The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, The Silmarillion, and more. Even better, many of these books are included in Amazon's Buy 2 Get 1 Free book deal, saving you even more on these seminal fantasy novels.

For a no-fuss collection of paperbacks, you can pick up a four-book set for as little as $13.85 from Amazon. This includes The Hobbit and all three volumes of The Lord of The Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King. That's 1,728 pages of fantasy, all neatly packaged in one portable box set for $13.85--a massive savings from its $36 list price.

You can also check out the history of Middle-earth in a five-volume collection for $28 (was $50) that chronicles the creation of the mythology, languages, and histories that formed the foundation of Tolkien's work. The Histories of Middle-earth includes both parts of The Book of Lost Tales, which collects the early myths and legends that led to the writing of Tolkien's epic tale of war, The Silmarillion. The Lays of Beleriand includes two of Middle-earth's most crucial stories, and The Shaping of Middle-earth traces the development of Middle-earth's earliest lore. You can round out the collection with a paperback edition of The Silmarillion for 11.49 (normally $18), which details even more of Middle-earth's sprawling lore and history.

Beyond these paperbacks and special-edition releases of the fantasy books, there are also some wonderful tie-ins that could make for fantastic gifts for the Lord of the Rings fan in your life. Illustrated editions of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings combine the original stories with Tolkien's elegant art that helps flesh out the lands of Middle-earth with some fine art.

Be sure to grab these Lord of the Rings book deals while they're still available, and check GameSpot's Black Friday 2023 hub for more discounts, including a special Buy 2 Get 1 Free deal on Elden Ring, Bloodborne, and Dark Souls comics and art books.
