Sorry php, the Nora has spoken. Laughing

For what it's worth, they revamped the LOTR covers recently and I do like the new ones much better.  They'll also be the same size/publisher as your version of The Hobbit but they're probably harder to find used than the covers I posted above.

I have a certain nostalgia for that cover because it's the same as my original copy of Fellowship, but I think that the Argonath one is more aesthetically pleasing.  It's your call for your books, though. Wink

aw, you're so sweet ^^ it's the same inside them anyhow, unless you want one with illustrations from either tolkien or Alan Lee or something. you're at least not missing out on anything, and buy each lotr book individually is much more practical when reading other places, don't have to bring a massive brick of a book.

They're all the same, it's just a question of which cover art you prefer. Wink

Never heard that one before. Laughing

NB I am jealous of your Alan Lee illustrated edition, Norc. Very Happy Those come with a hefty price tag though I'm sure.

I'll trust Google with converting. I have no idea where to begin and end to convert, but Google says its $24.61 in US dollars. http://www.google.com/search?safe=active&biw=320&bih=416&ei=YjYVUua9AtD64AOolIDQAg&q=149+nok+in+us+dollars&oq=149+nok+in+us+dollars&gs_l=mobile-gws-serp.3...7909.25526.0.26322.22.21.0.1.1.0.424.2965.4j16j4-1.21.0....0...1c.1.25.mobile-gws-serp..8.14.2174.yvu-OCxcvYk

Clicked your first link Norc and apparently "Bilde er ikke tilgjengelig". Shrugging

I really like the stylized grey cover with the trees and the butterflies though. Smile

No not much. Plus I already bought The Hobbit today. I'm one person so I could only read one book at a time, if I buy a second book I can't read both at the same time cuz I'm only one person.

Please don't take that serious. I said it cuz I thought its funny.
