Yes, thank you. It's always a pleasure to listen to Dr. Shippey. I saw him present at a local university soon after the first Jackson movie was released and he was very informative and entertaining.

I can honestly say without sarcasm that I am envious of people who don't have the completist sickness. If a book is within the scope of my collecting parameters and I can afford it (and often even if I cant afford it) I HAVE to have it.


Probably a lot of people go through that phase, but having collected Tolkien to a greater or lesser extent for 35 years, that phase is long gone for me! Now I'm only interested in buying it if it is actually *good*. B&L may well be good, but the description doesn't give me much confidence as yet that it won't be another round of drab brown Alan Lee illustrations tacked onto previously published material, with a bit of new connecting filler. I'm in the phase of collecting where I can't justify hundreds of pounds for something I will probably very rarely look at. I reserve the right to change my mind if the book turns out to be better than I'm expecting, of course!

One hundred would suffice.
