Is there a way to set up notifications for when books go on sale?

I didn't have The Road to Middle-earth, but I didn't get round to see the post until the price had gone back to the standard ...

To be perfectly honest, I find the idea abhorrent on so many levels, not least my firm conviction that Tolkien would himself have been completely horrified at the idea, but certainly also for the damage such a thing would do to Tolkien's reputation and the reading of his books.

You have, I hope, alerted the Tolkein Society?

I've ordered one or two things there.

It is expensive, as Stu says, but if you can live with the price, it does have some books that are hard to get anywhere else, and the service is OK (not blaming the standard delivery times that I am willing to pay for on the shop!) with material getting safely wrapped and secured for the shipping.

One thing that I have noted is that more secondary works are apparently now also considered collectable – this includes even academic literature (have you seen the current prices for the proceedings of the Centenary Conference or early volumes of Tolkien Studies??) and specialist titles such as the out-of-print issues of Parma Eldalamberon.

And insofar as I qualify as a 'collector', I am certainly not a completist. I have no ambition of getting all that comes out, nor have I any ambition of covering more than a single edition of the books that do come out (except for new and substantially updated editions – I do have the second edition of your J.R.R. Tolkien Companion and Guide on pre-order )
