I will popup to once more put forth the fact that even now the
sales of Tolkien's books are higher than they were before the movies. They
at the level they reached during the heights of the films' publicity, but
higher than they were beforehand as for example some kids who saw the movies
growing older and seeking out the books.
I am of course speaking from my experience of sixteen years as a bookseller
for two different
bookchains and at four different stores.
The Jackson films definitely have had an effect on sales. I cannot speak
what reaction the new readers have after they've read the books.
Does anybody have the sales figures of Tolkien's books? This list should go
back far enough to be well before the Jackson films. I'd prefer world
sales, but I'll accept American sales.
