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.

Well, if no one is going to post anything sensible into this thread, here is one of my cats helping out with some sour cream....

Phew, that is the internet fixed.

I suspect it is the same Pocket book as last year, but with a film cover on it. If so I doubt it will be on Stu's Xmas list.


Bah!!! Humbug!!! etc.

Yep, won't be getting that one!


I was right

I don't think most of the regulars here are the target market for movie tie-in editions... Is a nice painting on the cover if you are a movie fan.


Ok, but the bookcover for me is nowhere near as good as J.R.R. Tolkien's cover, so why not stick with one of the acknowledged best Dust jackets ever made?



I'm definitely predictable!

I think the main issue I have with the branding of the movie stuff is that I really don't like the movie logo at all. The Lord of The Rings branding wasn't quite as nasty, but the Hobbit title looks horrible. And hell will freeze over before I buy a book that has "Now a major motion picture" on the cover!
