I am going to be there on Monday. The pictures in the book are excellent so I am really looking forward to seeing the originals, and hopefully getting Alan to doodle some pictures in my books.

I agree it can spoil it, but I wonder what the Estate could have done to stop this, booksellers have the book and they want to sell it, and it is in a lot of stores. They don't really care about arbitary deadlines.

I hope that people like me who do have the book, do not spoil it for people who don't, we'll see.

I know about seventeen stores now who are selling the books... lovely how a world wide release can be spoiled!

That's interesting, I am sure that Foyles will have got into serious trouble with the Tolkien Estate for selling the book before the embargo.

I hope that the Tolkien Library is taking orders for books and delivering on Tuesday so they do not also get into trouble for breaking the embargo.

It seems to me that you have an excellent (I can't repeat that enough) gathering of information, that you have chosen to organize solely in chronological order. If/when you are comfortable, having these sorted in other orders as well (I wouldn't want to lose the ability to sort them chronologically) would be nice. Totally up to you where you want to spend the time!

I seem to be much better taking other peoples information into my database than entering my own (something to do with the fact that the scanner is attached to my 3-year old's computer, so I never get to use it), if you would prefer to put your time elsewhere. Seems like we have so many people generating content AND developing websites, there must be a way to streamline our efforts.

[added note: I don't mean to imply pulling tolkienbooks.net into my site - just offering services for website tinkering if it would help]
