In the last few days I have listed about 25 books,  all BIN, and sold 4 of them the same or next day I listed them.  Am i pricing too low, just right, or is it Christmas time rush? I just sold another item within 1 hour of listing. Maybe I have found better inventory or key words or I have suddenly improved my photos and descriptions?  I normally sell about 1 a day per 150-200 BIN.  

 

I have been listing Items for about 8-10% below what similar condition ones are listed for on Lincoln.

James Patterson Gives $1 million to Independent Bookstores

 

"Less than 10 months from the day James Patterson swore a million-dollar promise, he has kept his word. The best-selling novelist announced he has donated about $437,000 to 81 independent bookstores — a gift that completes his plan to donate $1 million of his own money to support independent booksellers.

 

When he first declared that plan in February, he spoke with NPR's Renee Montagne about his motivations.

 

"We're in a juncture right now where bookstores as we have known them are at risk," he said. "Libraries as we've known them are at risk, publishers are at risk, American literature is at risk, as we've known it, and getting kids reading is at risk."

 

The recent gift marked the third phase of his campaign, and it brings the sum of his donations several thousand past his goal. To date this year, Patterson has donated $1,008,300 to 178 bookstores across the U.S, with no strings attached. Publishers Weekly offers a list of the indies included in the third round, and the School Library Journal details how one of them plans to use the funds."

I usually just lurk on this board, soaking up valuable knowledge, never posting.  But I am driving to Texas from Florida for Christmas, and need to sell at a flea market there to make money for gas (though thankfully my trip is when prices are plunging!)  I will be in College Station, all I could find when I googled was a market in Bryan.  Does anyone know of it?  Is it worth selling at?  Thanks for any help given!

Clifford The Big Red Dog......

Hello all,

 

I have come into possesion of a book that has me puzzled. It is entitled:

 

"Her Daily Bread" and published in 1888 by Rand, McNally

 

Author is listed as Litere, which I have since learned is a pseud. of Lillian Sommers.

 

This book  has me stumped as I have never come across it before and can find very little information on either the author or this particular title. It also has on cover " H. Parmelee Library Edition".

 

Has anyone ever seen, or had experience, with this particular title? I have no idea value or where to begin in pricing/valuing this book. I have done as much searching as I can through various catalogs and sites but still have not gotten a real good grasp of where I should go with this particular title.

 

Any wisdom is appreciated!

 

Thank you,

 

KC
