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.

---Word from Small Beer:
Dear Bookseller,

Hope the holidays are gearing up well for you. In about a week or so the
first of our Peapod Classics reprint titles, Carol Emshwiller's CARMEN DOG
(tpb, ISBN 1931520089, $14, cover art by Drawn & Quarterly star Kevin
Huizenga), will arrive from the printer.

More info on the book is below and on this page:

---Installed Panther OS-X operating system on eMac. Looks like it will be pretty good. We needed it to run FileMaker Pro 7, which we also bought. Except for FedEx leaving it on a picnic table out in the rain and cold three doors down from our house.
