The Entrepreneurial Spirit Revisited

Okay people, as y’all know, I’m a former bookstore owner and as such…I’ve still got waaaay too many books lying around my apartment and storage room, just gathering dust. Looking at my bank statement and looking at the books, I decided that it made no sense to hold on to them. So welcome to my clearance sale.

Just to get the ball a-rolling, I’ve listed a mixture of old, new and in-between items at beginning at $0.20 up to $39.50 which will also be listed on a new blog I’m in the process of creating.

Why the blog and Amazon you ask? Well, I utilized Amazon for its quick uploading and wide customer base. Unfortunately, a cost goes with that ease of loading and wide customer base. $0.99 per item sold as well as a 15% commission on the sale price.

The way I see it, the blog will take longer to upload the items, but when all the work is said and done, it will be a better proposition from your point of view, because the prices of the items will be 15% lower.

Take a look around, if you see anything you like, email me or post a comment. Let’s see if we can help each other out. Oh and did I mention? Subscribers will receive an additional 10% discount.

Oh and since the books would have been making zilch on the shelves, I'll find it no hardship to donate my usual Tithe of 10% as well as an additional 10% for the Mission Fund.

Be sure to tell a friend...

Would that I could Dee. Books are my "true" friends. Right now all of my "friends" are in many, many boxes in the garage attic, waiting for a new home to be built...they've been waiting awhile and are getting impatient. Sometimes I can hear them "speaking" to me at night..."Read me, read me, read me."

Good luck on the sale, and come by and visit me for a laugh. New article just posted...all about the pitfalls of dining out "family-style" with your friends.

Ciao for now...
