My reading copies are the Quality Paperback Book Club editions with Tolkien's cover art. They are nice trade paperbacks that have the same pagination as the HMs and Unwins, and they hold up pretty well even after many readings. My old '78 HM boxed set is my other reading copy, the one that I used from age 13 until about 35 when I retired them and switched to paperbacks.

Hmm, a book club edition of Clockwork Orange (he hopes most eBayers don't know what bce means!) for £425.00; a 1st/1st "Canary" Row (or should it be Canary Warf?) starting at £19.99; a signed Pullman for £950.00 (that seems excessive, though Pullman seems to be going up in value with the movie coming out); and then a slew of junky Harry Potter kitsch.

That seller is all over the place!

I noticed that the user profile pages were not showing all the information you could add, so I adjusted a few things. You can see an example of what I threw together here:

Feel free to use it if you like. When you are logged in, you can click on the Edit Account link in the left menu.

That's also where you can set if you want to receive emails from the site, which I will be testing soon for newsletter-style updates.

Thanks!

These two auctions are pretty funny (though sad, at the same time). The first one (with the name mis-spelled) is a classic, and even comes with a COA! The second one is a shear bargain at 990.00 GBP. I am sold!!

This one is quite sad as well.

Unwin Hobbit Paperback with Facisimile Signature

The seller does not believe that this book has a facisimile signature because "(i personally am not convinced as it seems the only people who advise about these books are also the people that sell them for thousands and thousands of dollars!)" i.e. an X-files conspiracy theory to make out that the book is not signed when it is.

Hopefully any potential buyer will read Beren's or Deagol's website and work out that they are talking nonsense or they may notice the same book book from other sellers all described as having a facisimile signature.
