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.

---Lately I have not been as smitten with the sound quality from my stereo system. Yesterday I noticed a buzzing sound coming from my CD player. It became quite noticible, even while music was playing (especially The Cardinall’s Music which depends on a catherdal sound allowing reverberations to be held during pauses). It does not take an audiophile to be annoyed by a buzzing sound. I took it in to AudioVideoLogic where I bought it a few years ago, and they turned me over to their technician in another part of town. But he was not open today, so tomorrow I have another excursion to run that will not help my forward momentum toward getting everything done.

---I guess it paid off to send the PKD list, because every last one of the paperbacks are now sold. So once again I am without any PKD pbs. Maybe I should price them higher.

---Music played:
- The Byrd Edition 6: THE CARDINALL’S MUSICK (Music for the Holy Week and Easter) - better late than never
- Bettie Serveert LOG 22 (Xgau: A Minus) - hails from Urbana IL (“Smack in the middle of ridiculous places, smack in the middle where I shouldn’t have been.”)
