I just wish that they would cut out the middle-man and ship it straight to the land fill where it belongs.

A good portion of those books could just be pulped straight out of the bindery as well, given that far too many of them are probably the one-or-two-Tolkien-books-with-a-dozen-different-titles by David Day.

As a society, I genuinely think we have a massive problem with the constant cycle of worthless crap that we produce, using finite resources and creating pollution in the process.

The BBC have used OCR technology on every copy of the UK Radio Times magazine from 1923 to 2009.

Tolkien appears a lot, and possibly some of these recordings were not known about until this resource became available.

There seem to be a lot more adaptions of The Hobbit for the radio than I was aware of

The BBC also have another page that shows the same results from 2009 to today, but this does not seem to work, which is a shame

And how do you know it wasn't her Grannie who bought it for £1, Trotter?!
