I should say that I only asked if the seller could change to international shipping. S/he then suggested to change to a fixed price, which I agreed upon -- the auction had no bids by then, IIRC. Strangely enough, the seller didn't relist the auction until some days later, when a bid had been placed. I thought it was kind of odd -- but what to do? Sorry for stepping on your toes, Trotter: it wasn't my intention!


You did nothing wrong, well done on getting the item


If it is any consolation, Trotter, I only paid GBP 2.40 for my copy with Dust Jacket, and there were no other bidders. I expect another copy will be along soon enough :)

Well I received the Pocket Roverandom yesterday, and I'm happy enough with it. Nice cover and the paper is reasonably non toilet-paperish.

I have to say, though, I think the "novelty" pocket format is basically too small. I would have MUCH preferred an edition that matched the recent "Mr Bliss" and "Letters from Father Christmas". Those books are far easier to hold and read.

Open in new window


It looks like a Horn to me

How would this fit on your head, a helmet's purpose is to provide protection, this seems to fail on every level???



Hence the fall of Númenor.
