Thanks for the heads up on TOE, Lig. I had cancelled it on Amazon Canada, and was about to place a separate order for it. May hold off a few days and order Amazon US. Or go a head and order to lock in the price in case they go up. If it drops, they will guarantee the lower price. A week earlier release is nice ( and there's a Tolkien book coming out Nov. 11, too. That will make a nice package to get in the mail!).
