Beren,

Wish I could afford the signed Hobbit

Do you know who it was signed for?, it is one of the best J.R.R. Tolkien script signatures I've seen.

Belatedly -

The "Champion of Champions" contest is on BBC2 this week, with the final being shown this (Friday) evening at 8.00pm. My father in law appeared on Wednesday's show. For those who still want a bit of tension in their lives, or who are planning to watch that heat on iPlayer, I won't tell you who won!

We are just visible in the audience of Wednesday's show, but we haven't spotted ourselves in Monday's audience.

Lots to think on there Brian, and you are right; I am a small fish in a big pond when it comes to Tolkien book knowledge, and the blog will never be a winner in terms of 'let me tell you all there is to know about this book'. However, a nice mix of everything will suit my own needs.

Aye, I've had a look. Few initial thoughts...

I think collecting generally is of interest on its own. While, as you said, there aren't a great deal of sites/blogs with nice photo's, there equally aren't many sites detailing the motivation behind collecting --in this case Tolkien.

I think you could become quite bogged down on the detail of particular editions you've purchased, rather than focusing on (perhaps) why you bought a particular book, and (I think often under-discussed, but central to all acquisitions) the economics behind the purchase.

With straight facts it's inevitable that people will read and simply find fault with the 'facts' you detail; noticing errors and spurious claims. You might be better focusing more on your own opinion, rather than quoting the opinion of others. Also, once it has been up & running a while, it will be quite interesting to see how your own personal collecting has grown (not necessarily the collection itself); how your opinion of things has changed; how your collecting methods have been modified etc.

Also, if you do quote, people might want to see references. And, another idea, you could open another thread here (suitably titled) and update the forum of new entries on your blog; in the same way Parmastahir does with his long-running Tolkien Calendar Collecting thread in the Calendar section of the forum. (Have a look.)

I'll be reading it...
