I have been toying with the idea of using a blog as a method of publishing updates to TolkienBooks.net - and of producing a proper RSS feed. Any suggestions for a free or cheap (~$50) script? I am looking for something that I can incorporate into my site rather than a page on one of the big 'social networks'.

It has been about 3 years since I did the bookshops in Oxford, but hopefully the following shops will still be there:

Oxfam Bookshop - on St. Giles - just down the road from the Bird and Baby.

There is a bookshop on Walton Street but I can't remember its name - about 10-15 minutes walk from Oxfam.

Blackwells - on Broad Steet - the main shop (next to the New Bodleian Library) has a great antiquarian/collectable section.

There are two shops at the Magdalen Bridge end of High Street, one of which is at the back of an antiques shop.

There is a paperback shop in the Covered Market and branches of Waterstones and Borders in the middle of town.

The Oxonmoot info booklet should include a map, but in the meantime you could try Multimap.

Hope this helps.

In London, there is a huge choice of bookshops, but you may want to visit the following as they are all within walking distance of Piccadilly Cirus Tube Station.

I would suggest that you have a look at Hatchards in Piccadilly (http://www.hatchards.co.uk/), fairly small Tolkien selection but probably the largest number of 'signed' books by signed authors that you will ever see in one bookshop. There is a Waterstones about 100 yards up the road towards Piccadilly Circus, which has on the first floor quite a lage Tolkein selection, but Blackwells in Oxford is better.

For older books Charing Cross Road is definately worth a look, it has a lot of bookshops but make sure that you pay a visit to Cecil Court which is a sideroad and has some excellent bookshops specialising in rare books. (http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&q=cecil+court,london&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=53.432436,81.738281&ie=UTF8&z=16&om=1).

It is there a bit of time right now... the slideshows pauzes as long as you move your mouse over it. Yet I can slow it down if you wish. Glad you like it. I wanted some more highlights on one page so I thought of some css with javascript and a little bit of images to catch the eye!

Hey Beren,

I don't know if I just haven't paid close attention or not, but I like the fadeshow on your homepage TolkienLibrary.com.

It seemed a wee bit fast to me (I like reading the snippets without having to roll over with the mouse) but it's still really nice. Have to hire you to spruce up TCG a bit.
