I've been selling some of my books lately. More will be sold in the coming weeks. If I had the time or patience I'd be selling them online --either Amazon or Ebay. I'm not talking about worn paperbacks or crappy generic books. Mostly very specific topical academic & scholarly books. Some of them I even have duplicates of! But mostly just books that I don't find interesting anymore. Books are really hard to sell these days. Many of them I can only get $3 to $5 a piece. Made $200 last week, which isn't that bad. Probably $1000 worth of literature, but oh-well, I chose to let them go. My buddy Jean, who owns & operates an awesome, cozy, medium sized antiquarian bookshop in Ann Arbor--Motte & Bailey--always gives me the best money for my books. But he's only buying a really small, small amount of stuff right now. He says business is just not good enough to throw out large amounts of cash on purchases. I feel bad for him, 'cus his store is bad-ass and he's a nice guy, but we all know Amazon, Kindle, and other online retailers & electronic devices are encroaching on the printed book and the mom & pop bookstores. UGGGHH!! I hate it. Hate it.
