Used Books for sale on Amazon.com

October 20, 2009

I have some books for sale on my amazon.com site at http://www.amazon.com/shops/mikeneedsakidneydotcom.  Most people are familiar with buying used books on amazon.  For any particular book, you can find a certain number of used copies for sale listed by price.  So for example when you search on “A Farewell to Arms” by Ernest Hemingway, the audiocassette version, this comes up:  “2 new from $100.39, 15 used from $5.45.”  So the cheapest one is $5.45.  I always list mine as the cheapest, with the exception that I won’t go below $4.50.  Sellers constantly lower prices by a penny at a time so at any one time there may be a book that is slightly cheaper than mine, but for the most part I make sure that my books are the cheapest ones you can buy.  I have a lot of books on art, history, and fiction, and they include hardbacks, paperbacks, and books on tape (cd or cassette).

Here’s a list of some of them:

  • Call of the Wild by Jack London (audio book)
  • A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway (audio cassette)
  • Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
  • Antietam (Audio CD) by James Reasoner
