Well, it isn't me!

I have another point to raise: bruffyboy wrote:

"The most annoying thing about the difference in heights is that the set becomes less desirable than the separate books which, on their own, look like very fancy one offs. _Indeed, most collectors do not seem to place the books next to each other, opting rather for a height based order rather than edition based._"

Really? I don't sort books according to height, and it hadn't occurred to me that others do, either. My de luxe editions of that ilk are together on the same shelf; variant heights and all I don't really mind the differences; I think of them as a minor detail (if I think of them at all).

Being a 'follower' simply means that if you read the blog you click 'follow' and it emails you every time there is a new post. It would eliminate the need to check the blog or this thread numerous times to see when something new comes up. So, for example, you yourself posted it on this thread when the hurin super deluxe post went up. That means you would have had to look at the blog, and if there was nothing new up it would have been a wasted journey, one which could be avoided if you (or others) were a 'follower'.

I just find it funny that you guess on everyone's behalf that the follower is not from here, as in my own point of view they probably are, and although they can comment here they probably 'followed' to save numerous wasted trips to the blog or this thread to check for updates.

Why do you think or assume this is funny? I think you have missed my point, I don't think anyone here will follow you (whatever that means), but that members will post any views on this forum if they are so inclined.

Trotter - what a funny thing to assume! Whoever it is is likely to have at least read about it here, as I only posted here (and one other tolkien forum) and the follower joined that day. Possibly a lurker, but either way I am looking to double my followership ;)

New book up: http://collectingtolkien.blogspot.com ... arper-collins-deluxe.html and can we please get more than one 'follower' for the blog?! Whoever it is looks so lonely all by themselves!


I don't think anyone here is the follower, as any comments from guide members have been made in this topic and not on your blog.
