- an odd example of google translation, perhaps?

It is only a mistake if you buy it :)

Well someone took the plunge! What was the price, it doesn't show it now it has been sold...

Sorry - the price was £420. I guess the seller realized his mistake and took it down.

Let's see- value of the book: 8 to 10 GBP. Value of the dustwrapper: nuthin'. Aethetic value of wrapping one item around the other - less than nuthin'.

Yes, it's nuts!

and it has been mentioned quite a few times in wonders of eBay, surely no one would ever buy this (I live in hope)

What an Abe bargain,

The Hobbit [UNABRIDGED], only £1870.47
"Book Description: Recorded Books 2002-11, 2002. Audio Cassette. Book Condition: good. 1402536941. Bookseller Inventory # 634020"



We could just show these in the Wonders of eBay, I think stupid items in other online sites can also fit in this thread, i.e. it does not need to be just stupid ebay auctions.

What do you think?

I am locking this thread, and have now renamed the Wonders of eBay to the Wonders of..., which would also now be for the posts.

i.e.

USE THE "WONDERS OF..." THREAD!
