~e-bay~

The last week or so I have been checking e-bay on a minute-by-minute basis. Why? Because I've spent hours listing books on e-bay! If anyone is interested in Greek manuals, let me know, and I'll e-mail you my user name so you can look at them. There are also a few Christian titles I've listed as well.

We condensed our bookshelves so that we could take one of the bookshelves out of the office. It covered up the vent and it was always hot in the summer, cold in the winter. Now it's cold in the summer. ;-)

After spending a combined six hours listing books this weekend, it is very gratifying to see people bidding on my books! In the past, I had entertained visions of selling books on e-bay as a home business, but this venture has quickly squelched that idea. I am so finicky about my descriptions (if there is one page turned down, I'm apt to mention it in the description), so it takes me a long time to write up each listing. But in the end, I feel like it is worth the time taken, because it ensures a positive feedback!

Well, off to check on e-bay! LOL

My husband and I have friends that do a very good business selling books on Amazon.com and half.com. They started out making enough to pay the mortgage, and now the wife does not work. She makes more selling books than she would teaching.

Good luck with your book sales!
