NY Times Magazine: Internet Used Book Sales "An Actual Internet Success Story"

The New York Times seems to love used book sales on the Internet, as do we. Yesterday's New York Times Magazine published a story providing numerous examples of different Internet used book success stories. One of the most staggering revelations: "Used books now account for more than 15 percent of Amazon's sales."

We agree. CTDATA buys and sells used books on Amazon.com all the time. If you need a specific book, but you can wait five or six days, you'd be crazy not to go to Amazon and look at the prices for used copies of that book.
