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.

---Interesting to see Neil’s picture on the Howard Dean Blog for America website. Good to get an inkling what all that all-night keyboard clatter was all about all summer. The sympatico programming crew profiled there makes me feel bad his on-line meetings were frequently stymied by our puny dial-up AOL internet connection; and by how hot it would get in his upstairs room, where despite central air in the house, it would be more like an attic sauna after days on end in the upper nineties. Unfit for computers and people trying to write code, but great to see how it may have been worthwhile. I just hope he doesn’t crash and burn thinking he can continue to usurp the basic principles of human sleep need.
