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.

10/31/05 MON:
---The back is gradually getting better, but I am still a ways less than fully capacitated. It would be nice if I could completely dispense with all lifting until a full recovery has been achieved, but my daily routine involves a bit of box moving--or else I would have to completely give up on pulling books for orders to be sent out. A lot of you, I know, might think this has already happened, but I’m still here trying to stay busy. Besides, if I totally laid out until a full recovery, that recovery might leave me with restricted range of motion. Even if it makes me take longer to get better, I still want to try to test the limits of what I can do without undue hurt.
