Hey all,

Have you ever noticed that on Twitter, every day is the official something day? Today claims to be #Tolkienreadingday, and so I thought I'd post something appropriate. Rather than just do something from Middle Earth, I figured I'd focus on an actual book MOC, Patrick B's rendition of Bilbo's Book from a few years ago. What's your favorite book-centered MOC?

BTW, follow @Classic_Castle on Twitter for MOCs as well as website and other LEGO Castle news.

This was the first creation that sprang to mind when thinking about a book based MOC:

I have seen quite a few excellent builds based off of books, but don't remember that many off the top of my head.

That's an awesome one! Some others, a few of which have been featured MOCs on our front page before:

Grant Davis and Jason Alleman's working pop up book

Nathan Sawaya's pop-up book

Noah McClung's Tumnus and Lamppost
Image

Jonas Kramm's Quidditch Book

A couple of years ago Mocathalon had a "bookends" category, that inspired some great MOCs like these:

TMM's Two Towers
Image

Gabe Umlad's You could always paint them red
Image

Not castle, but by one of ours - Blake Baer built this Bookend safe

Deb Higdon's Castle Bookends were before that contest.
