Does anyone on this forum go under the eBay monker of "finnish_guy". If so, I need to plead with you to stop throwing your money away on books that are far too expensive!!!

Every time I see something that I think is *really overpriced*, this guy seems to have bought it.

Examples, I just got the John Howe slipcased centenary Harbacks in unread condition (with a HC 1st Thus Hobbit thrown in) for $36 (about 23 pounds) , but finnish_guy paid 200 pounds. What-the?

And 159 pounds for the HC Centenary Sil? Eeek.

Please finnish_guy, start being sensible, as paying crazy prices just encourages eBay sellers to ask crazy prices!

Cheers
Stu

Sorry, Trotter - I wouldn't trust this lot to tell me whether or not it's raining! I went and got myself a copy of the standard, unsigned edition, and I Do Not Care whether I have a CB sig, or not.

Enough is enough.


I would suggest that anyone who wants the signed books just sticks with their order from Amazon.co.uk and relaxes. You will either get the book at some point or not (in which case you can cancel the order). Or alternatively, just order from HC - again, they will either be able to supply or not. I definitely don't think it is worth getting stressed about.

My Amazon.co.uk order has been pushed out to expected delivery early-mid January, but that date could just be completely arbitrary, of course. If I don't end up getting the book, I won't lose too much sleep.

I can't mind the list price. Is this eBay listing too expensive or something?

*p.s. - anyone who's seen my collection, and the list of 'names' on items there, will know what a disappointment this is for me.
