In the main menu on the left bar, there is a "submit" link just under the Classifieds entry. Really subtle, and that's what I don't like about it. There should be a nice "submit new ad" button at the top of the page, just like there is a "new topic" button in the discussion forums at the top of pretty much every page.

There are other layout issues I am not happy with, but they are really low priority. But so few ads are being posted, I want to make it as easy as possible to encourage people to use it.

No new catalog yet, I ended up installing a new door and hardwood floor over the holidays (when not entertaining all the company that came by for a visit), almost no time spent on the computer unfortunately. Now I am hoping to have it ready in the next week or two.

I certainly have plans to, and it is getting towards the top of my list. :) I have started scanning in a lot of books for it, but find myself trying to focus on getting a catalog for the store out before I start writing descriptions for the US editions. Maybe start on it this month?

[My todo list for this site is about 5 years long, I think. And growing. There's so much *stuff*... books are a high priority though. It was supposed to be first but I got distracted by fanzines... and placeholder pages for other collectibles as I run across archives, such as New Line calendars, I am trying to resurrect the collectTolkien.com pages for that right now, etc.]

I think that's a great idea! I have some links from other sites that I will post here soon (AABA, IOBA, etc.) and try to write up some myself as well.

Brodart or Gaylord archival dustjacket protectors are a must in my mind - they protect the dustjacket from tears, UV sunlight, fingerprints, etc, and are non-acidic so they won't accelerate the deterioration of the paper.

I have glass doors on my bookshelves to keep dust levels down (not tightly sealed, as you don't want moisture buildup, etc.)

Wayne and Christina had an article in the Tolkien Collector about how they take care of their collection that was excellent. (The good news being that Wayne just told me that they are back on track with TC, so back issues should be mailed out someday soon, and a new issue is forthcoming!) Perhaps I can get reprint permission for that article.

Other comments are welcome!

It doesn't seem too intuitive to me how to post a classified ad - how about you? Should I rework that page design to make it easier to use the classifieds section?
