NY Times Publishes Essay on Reselling Books
Martin O'Donnell pointed out an essay published in yesterday's New York Times about reselling books on Amazon.com. Fred Bernstein, the author, says that he first took his books to Strand in New York City, got a rather low offer, then went home and put them up for sale on Amazon.
In a way, it seemed surprising that he chose Amazon.com and not Ebay to resell his product. But, if you look at the placement that the used book inventory receives from Amazon, it might be better to sell used books via Amazon than Ebay.
In any event, CTDATA has multiple copies of a few of our favorite technical books, and we have been planning to try reselling them, if only to learn more about the experience. We will follow-up when we have something substative to report.
