Used copies of Sisam's Fourteenth Century Verse and Prose containing Tolkien's Vocabulary can be had for a song, much cheaper and much more attractive than these modern photocopied "reprints".

I just came from reading the new post on Tolkien Library concerning a pirate reprint of A Middle English Vocabulary.

A middle English vocabulary by J R.R. 1892-1973 Tolkien?

It's sad news indeed!

Beren mentions that the original book was published in 1923 - does this actually make the book a part of the "public domain" (at least in some countries)? Could we therefore hope for better reprints? (Unfortunately, not everyone has the money to buy the original!)

The email notifications have been around for ages here, but nobody uses them for the most part - and for good reason! They are hard to find, and were not very informative.

I have just turned on the ability to get the full text of forum posts sent to you via email (if you choose). Images are not sent, and you cannot reply directly via email - you still have to come here for the full full experience, but the mostly-full experience via email should help keep you regulars in the loop without having to come scan the site often to see if anything new has been posted.

First, go to http://www.tolkienguide.com/modules/newbb/ (the home page for the forums).

Look at the bottom of the page for the "Notification Options"



and click on the plus sign (seen above).

Then, select the "Notify me of any new posts (include full text in message)" checkbox and click "Update Now".



Also, be sure to look below the Update Now button and set your Notification Method to email (click the "Change" link to do so).

On the left sidebar there is a "Notifications" link down near the bottom. You can manage all of your notifications here (change method, stop receiving emails, etc.)

Let me know if you have any questions. I am working on making this a little more obvious/intuitive.

Not perfect if you still have to keep logging on! Although if you are only coming by once a day that is expected. But if you go away for an hour or two and come back, you should still be logged in.

I have Facebook login mostly working but not exposed yet - want to make sure it doesn't break anything.

I had the share buttons (FB, twitter, etc.) for a while but something broke temporarily on their side, and then I never turned them back on... I will peek at that too.

One other thing, but I will post that separately in a moment. I think you will like it!

New book just arrived today!

http://collectingtolkien.blogspot.com ... de-luxe-edition-2007.html

Still having issues with the blog rotating pics of its own accord - frustrating to say the least.
