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.

4/29/03 TUES:
---Received from THE PROGRESSIVE:
"This week at you'll find the alarming, the outrageous,
and the inspiring.
Editor, Matt Rothschild reviews the alarming steps being taken by Ashcroft,
and the rest of the Republicans as they continue to trample on our civil
liberties at home while Bush plays schoolyard bully around the globe.
You'll find "The Ashcroft Raids," "The Anti-Sex Party" and "Don Corleone
You'll be outraged by the latest installment of "McCarthyism Watch." CBS
is airing a miniseries in May called "Hitler: The Rise of Evil," but the
man who was producing it is out of a job for speaking his mind.
But, I think you'll take inspiration from Elizabeth DiNovella's interview
with comedian, actress, and activist Janeane Garofalo."

---Added to bookmarks:
- Gutenberg Project (for downloads of public domain literature; I have printed out pages 1-20 of PHARSALIA by Lucanus of some 246 total that I now have in a word-processing document; the ways I can think of to go off on tangents!)
