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.

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!

Have any of you peeked at the auction page recently? Been making some changes over there to make it more useful. More coming.


But does the auction page have any cats on it? For me, that is the key question.
