Does anyone know if there's a store one can order the books offered on Tolkien.co.uk and have them shipped to a U.S. address? Tolkien.co.uk doesn't appear to allow U.S. orders.

Re: Tolkien.co.uk

Well if anyone else was wondering the same thing, I discovered, thanks to someone on theonering.net mIRC chat, that Amazon.co.uk carries the books as well, and will ship to U.S. addresses.

So my War of the Jewels in paperback is on its way for a mere 12 pounds! <img src=smile.gif ALT="">

I like the little flash into they have.. du, du, du du du, du, du, dududu. <img src=smile.gif ALT="">

Re: Tolkien.co.uk


Consider that as an advertisement, but they are decent folk, those working for Amazon. One of my shipmnents was lost in the transit, and they replaced it instantly for free, without bugging me with requests for the proof or any other choring stuff. Long live the Amazon!

Re: Tolkien.co.uk

For those of you who didn’t already know, last month saw the highly successful launch of www.tolkien.co.uk. So by way of celebration we thought we’d give all of you Tolkien fans out there the chance to watch rare archive footage of JRR Tolkien explaining how he came to write The Hobbit.

Been there, done that? Well don’t miss out on the hundreds of other great features which can be found on the site, highlights of which are detailed below:

Re: Tolkien.co.uk

Tolkien.co.uk is not only on the BD links page, it is also represented with its own banner on the main page.
Both of the above seem a considerably better way of advertisement than spamming the forum, one would think...
