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.

dividing up documents

It seems like the update Google made on Documents is making it difficult and sometimes impossible to load whole files. Supposedly they are working on the problem but meanwhile I think it might not be a bad idea if I reduced the size of the documents anyway. I'm not going to do it all at once. Maybe a file a day. I'll redo the links at the top of the individual documents, and here, when I get it all done. Meanwhile, I will add the new links here as they become available. Anyone having trouble accessing these, let me know, or add to the comments at Google Help. Here are the links:
newer new arrivals (new and used): [this is a new link to a fresh document -- the old one was causing Firefox 4 to crash on my Mac]
older new arrivals (used books):
