The Hobbit is a Cash Cow

This week a 1937 first edition inscribed copy of JRR Tolkien’s The Hobbit sold at a European auction for £60,000 (or $119,122.61, for those folks who want to gripe about the weakness of the US dollar). All told the BBC says this is double the expected sale.

This is why I go to yard sales… the dream of one day running across an unkown copy…

Hey, it could happen!
