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.

Very nice set. I have directly cancelled my pre-order at amazon for the separate books, and ordered the box.
Perhaps bookpeople will have the separate books also with dj.

I must say that is one of the nicest boxed sets (incoporating the book spines as well) that I have ever seen for Tolkien's major works. Many kudos to the design team that put this together!
