We have the same feelings about eBay, though we (actually Christina) daily wade through the great mass of chaff looking for increasingly elusive wheat.

There are some relatively recent books we would go after there, if we could - one of the Cascades Hobbits, the first printing of the new HarperCollins film tie-in paperback Hobbit which we somehow managed to miss when it came out last year, the Book People Hobbit with the dust-jacket - but stock images and generic descriptions do indeed make it impossible to know if the copy offered is the copy wanted, and an uncomfortable number of sellers won't ship to the U.S.A.

We would have bid for three of the Silmarillion translations HouseofLostTales offered on eBay - Greek 1996, Korean 1997, and Romanian 1999 - but didn't want to bid for the larger lot these were in, as we have everything else in it and didn't want to have to try to dispose of so many duplicates.
