The New Arrivals!

So, Friday brought some long-awaited arrivals: three boxes filled with four copies each of the new, improved, one-volume second edition of THE HISTORY OF THE HOBBIT. These are my author's copies, mailed to me from Glasgow near the end of October; I assume they got delayed by all the holiday mail in-between. At over 5 kgs each,* they're a pretty hefty bundle.

Two are already spoken for, and the rest go on the smallish stack downstairs of my remaining copies of the first edition (the trade paperback version).

Here's what Janice had to say about it, reposted from her Facebook:

The sound of John's author copies of the 1 volume The History of the Hobbit arriving on the door step.
We've now got 13 hobbits. I wonder where we can find a dwarf to make up our lucky number?

*each box that is, not each book
