In the good old days, you could use an anonymous proxy in the UK to get around their price-discrimination (you just needed to use the proxy when adding the first item to the cart, not when paying). Nowadays they don't allow any proxies.

Yep, rather than move to an honest and open pricing model, they banned proxies and continued with the 'Free Shipping' lie.

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?

I doubt it is legit.

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!!
