Oh dear, I hope PJ doesn't do such an awful hatchet-job of the Hobbit as he did with LoTR. I really wanted to like the LoTR movies (in fact I do like the feel of them in parts, and they look great), but the plots became increasingly bad as the series progressed. I don't think that movies should be the same as books, but plot changes should add something to the mix (and make sense). A lot of PJs changes were pointless and jar badly.

It's also hard to see how two movies could be justified for the Hobbit without entering into territory for which New Line does not have the rights or PJ/FW simply making stuff up.

Thanks Dior - Always good to know their are fellow people (especially on the same continent) who don't think it's lunacy to have 10 different copies of the same book :)

Yep, north and south are pretty arbitrary, but given that those pesky Europeans drew the first world maps (and they also favour that annoying Mercatur projection which makes Western Europe look huge and Australia look the size of a dry-roasted peanut), I have grown to accept that I am dwelling on the underbelly of the planet :)

More importantly, my second [Australia-bound] copy of the CoH arrived today (number 97 -- which is kind of nice as my two copies neatly add up to 100). It's an impressive book and the colour is much nicer than it appeared in some of those eBay photos.

Now we all just have to hope that HC don't give up on trying to sell them direct and end up putting them on Amazon heavily discounted. That would be kind of annoying!

>I was at work on the 19th, I can't just go surfing and checking my email like some! - Khamul

Actually, I was also at work that day, but the 9 hour time-difference between Perth and the UK played to my advantage - There have to be some advantages to being stuck hanging off the bottom of the planet !!! :)

Nah, I'm not too worried about not having ordered two copies up front. I think the number is fairly academic anyway (although number 3 certainly does have a nice ring to it!)

I'm not sure about whether copies 1 and 2 were sold or given (as you suspect to CT and AL) . My address label apparently had No.3, (P?)1-1 and the shipping reference on it. I'm assuming the 1-1 simply refers to it being the first printing?

However, my worldpay cart ID was 151. It might be assumed that the first transaction was 150, which could well be someone buying copies 1 and 2. Just speculation, of course!
