How much should you charge for a book? You might consider obvious economic considerations: value for the dollar, how much comparable books cost, impulse buying, and so forth. Or you might throw all that out the window and think, "If I can find just the right buyer, I'll have it made." This, apparently, is the strategy chosen by the sellers on Amazon listed below.
(I wish I could afford that Perry Mason mystery. It looks like a good one. And I wonder what these books went for new?)
A few notes of possible interest:
1. GAMA-GO Postcard Book (v. 1) is no longer listed for $48,597,300.00, as it was when I pulled this list from Amazon a few days ago; its price has been adjusted downward to $5,647,626.24. Almost a 90% discount. Other books have disappeared entirely. I wonder if someone has made a killing?
2. Odds on Miss Seeton is a hardback copy. The paperback goes for $0.01, plus shipping.
3. I can see why college students complain about the price of textbooks, if MA 110 Intro to statistical Methods and Data Analysis is representative.
4. No Sign of Life is available from two different sellers for the same price.
My wife took the picture at the top of this post in the spring(!) of 2007, when we spent a while traveling around England, starting in Oxford. (Here's the story of that trip.) It's a view from the roof of Carfax tower. I don't know the city well enough to say what this photo shows; I'd guess one of the colleges.
