Anyone desperate to complete their set of The Silmarillion audiobooks? Here's Volume II, and what a bargain!

Hey, at least it's free shipping!

This is a little different "Wonder" of eBay, as it is simply me marveling at the current landscape of the eBay Tolkien collecting market. I was just taking a quick look (from the U.S., with search setting set to "Worldwide."), and the sheer volume of Peter Jackson movie related paraphernalia is simply astounding. So, using a few very obvious search terms, I determined what proportion of all items found were (at least) listed as books.

Tolkien - 88%
Hobbit - 55%
Lord of the Rings - 9%
Silmarillion - 97%

Only 9% of all items retrieved with 'LotR' turned out to be books. There are over 41,000 items that show up for 'LotR,' with only 8300 for 'Tolkien,' and 3100 for 'Hobbit.' I "wonder" how many 'Hobbit' items there will be, in about two years or so. I know I will probably end up watching these new movies, but there is a large part of me that wants to boycott. Oh well, at least we still have the Silmarillion for our imaginations.

From the seller, "All three volumes are fine, obviously unread copies." Is that a cat jumping over a black rider? I do say!

What do you all think of this one? Very strange to me to see a 'flat signed' CoH out there. Signature looks almost good, but pretty dodgy, if you ask me. It's a bit too loopy for me to believe it is Christopher Tolkien's hand.

Greetings, everyone. I have listed for sale on ebay, the unabridged audio books for The Silmarillion, The Hobbit, and The Lord of the Rings. They are all CD format. They are in great shape, as they were only listened to once and well cared for during that time. The shrink wrap is still on them, but it has been opened just enough to get at the cd's. I have them listed as 'buy it now or best offer.'
