So... how many collectors here have smart phones now (a phone with a web browser in it)?

I must say, having one available when I am out shopping not only means that I can have access to Amazon, addall.com, eBay, and other sites to check availability and prices, but also it is sort of what I envision the Guide moving towards as an online resource.

And I love all the posts about moving your collections! I haven't moved in years now, but before this house I used to move at least once a year (renter in a very volatile market.) Thankfully all of the moves were quite local and I had access to both places for a while, so I could carefully pack a few boxes at a time and carry them myself from one place to another.

I am really looking forward to seeing the 2009 calendar. Just as a side note, Anthony mentioned that he has a few of the 2008 calendar left for those who missed out on it. Great artwork, and a great collectible too! Just get in touch with him if you are interested at

Our PDA also contains wants lists and other documents with information convenient to have at hand.

For various reasons, we just use plain old Microsoft Word. This is converted to Palm form through DataViz Documents to Go.

Hi Wayne,

I have also thought of using a palm pilot for when I am out and about, (although with my modest collection it would be a list of what I need not what I have). I thought a database would be the best program to use, but I did not find any programs that seemed to right for my requirements. Can you tell me what you are using?
Thanks
Dior

Thanks for posting the link wellinghall.

Just as an added bit of information to the Elaine Griffiths mention:- Prior to the Bonhams Auction, a number of books from the estate of Elaine Griffiths were sold via ABE.

The only Tolkien related one that I saw was a copy of a 1992 Tolkien Family Album which was inscribed by Priscilla Tolkien 'In Loving Memory of Sixty Years of Friendship with the Tolkien Family'.
