Is that the only difference? I have always seen them separate and I am hesitant to purchase the trilogy in case it is different than the three.marianner said:Wow, I guess the Tolkiens came around. Personally, I will wait for the trilogy, since I'd prefer to have them all together on my Kindle. Plus, it's almost half price to get the trilogy at $15.94 than to buy the three books at $9.99 each. It's really a matter of personal preference, though.
