For some reason, it doesn't come up under Fiction anymore, nor does it appear when I search "Unfinished Tales." I figured it was just some sort of glitch - hope to add it to the shelf in December!


Stuff randomly appears and disappears off the Tolkien.co.uk site all the time. It is fundamentally broken - I wouldn't worry about it!

Do you guys think this is a legitimate copy of the audiobook for sale? I think I'm going to report it. I've seen it listed several times now.

What do you guys think?

eBay Item #261274746398


I doubt it is legit.

Blimey I would have started earlier
Where are you moving too, within NZ ?
Moves are always stressful for sure. I only had to move my books once thank goodness , it was a mare.
Good luck
If you want me to look after any for you do let me know


Heh Heh, that's a kind offer! :)

We are off to Queenstown down in South Island. We have bought a rural two-and-half acre block with a nice "Hobbity" stone-clad house about 10 minutes from town and really close to the access road for Coronet Peak ski field.

I think five weeks should be plenty for packing the books - it is just very tedious, so a couple of hours at a time is about as much as I can cope with - I think I have packed about 60 so far. I don't know how the guys with the really big collections do it? I guess they just don't move house once the collection reaches a certain size!

My biggest concern is moving our two cats, to be honest. No quarantine from Australia, at least, but still a long journey for them with overnight boarding, inspections, etc. At the end of the day, if I lost all the books, I would be annoyed (and I'm not sure I would start collecting again!), but the cats - whilst exceedinlgy pesky - are genuinely irreplaceable!!

Well, for the third time in a decade, I'm packing the books for long distance travel. Takes bloomin' ages - photograph, wrap individually in paper, individually bubble-wrap, seal two stacks of 6 or so in a bin liner, seal liner, add dessicant, put into box surrounded by crumpled paper, seal up. I don't move for another 5 weeks, and I reckon I will take me about that long to wrap 'em (and my Tolkien collection is still only a measly 300 books or so!). sigh.

Good stuff Jeremy. Pretty soon I'm not going to have to bother noting interesting auctions & Tolkien sales generally; TCG seems to have it sorted!

Agreed! Thanks, Jeremy - it's a great resource, especially for someone as lazy as me that wants to track all the auctions but actually rarely does!
