After quite a while resting on my more or less laurels (past listings) it's time to get a move on and put up some more listings. My goal is five books every day from now on. This should be achievable, but not according to my past performance.

These books get listed in three places: on Amazon, Biblio, and Half. Books without ISBNs (older books) generally will not be listed on half. My prices might vary between these three places. Amazon and Half tell me competing prices, so I peg mine on them. Thus, if the lowest price for Deadly Percheron is $98 on Amazon, I might peg mine at $95. If it weren't my only copy maybe I'd be more reasonable. In fact, I think my Biblio listing is more reasonable.

Going forward (and possibly backward), links to titles of books will send you to the main Amazon listing. My listing will be somewhere amidst the other maybe 237 listings. This is where my photo of the book can be seen, which will probably be a better one than the one Amazon features. Half doesn't let me attach my own photo—at least I don't think it does. Photos are also at biblio. Lots of older listings still don't have photos. Nor updated prices.

I've been lousy at selling direct via email. Sorry about that, if you've tried me. Listing through the major portals keeps me honest—also prompt and reliable.

4/1/03 TUES:
---Back to work in the cellar.


CDs played today:
- Stanley Kubrik’s A CLOCKWORK ORANGE soundtrack (vinyl LP)
- Nisse Helberg XTREM (non-extreme George Thorogood in Swedish)
- Bruce Springsteen THE RISING (Xgau: HM) - not near as hyper as the terrific TV concert on CBS a couple weeks ago.
- Fred Frith CLEARING

---I am way bogged down (not to say blogged, though I should) getting next catalog (#145) out.
---Temps in 70s by mid-morning, ran 5 miles in shorts as early as I could get out. It finally got up to a high of 87 degrees--downright hot.
---Won’t have much chance to dwell on words here, because I am so behind on everything. As occasions occur, though...

---Another batch of pbs for next insert sheet:
