Selling Books on Amazon.Com

I started selling books on Amazon.Com in mid July after deciding to again simplify our life by ridding ourselves of things we just don't use or need. I have many research books along with gardening and craft books that I just don't have the time or need for any more. Most of my books are like new. It is better to pass them on to a more useful life. Immediately, there was a surge of sales that I couldn't believe. I soon ran across some books for sale at $10/box that I bought and listed. Just this past 7 days, I have sold 42 books! I have now upgraded my account to a "Pro-Seller" account which will give me more profit if I sell over 40 books per month and loose me money if I sell less than 40. I better keep listing!

I listed many books on martial arts, alternative medicine, herbs, philosophy, and Far Eastern religions. I know now, that people are really looking for specific topics on older books that may be out of print. A few of the books I recently found at an estate sale are worth much more than I ever imagined. It will be great when I actually sell a book for over $100.00!

To find my Amazon listings isn't as easy as I thought it would be. You either have to follow the link or find a listed book or my feedback area and click on my store name, Winchuck River Store.

Of course, this won't stop me from selling other items on eBay and on my website. Here are a few of the items that I recently purchased from Lazart Productions. I especially love the aspen metal wall hanging. It goes along with the aspen branch I am using to hold my curtains up in the living room. We have an aspen grove of approximately 20 or so trees.

We haven't even gotten the descriptions written to get these items posted yet. Have fun looking and hope to see you visiting one of our sites: Winchuck River Store, , Kingfisher Electric Boats, Our eBay Training Site, or our eBay Store with the seller ID: winchuckriverstore.
