September was a typical month in many ways - Rowling, King, The Hobbit, Alcoholics Anonymous. But strange things happened too. A non-fiction top ten auction disappeared from eBay after Freud's Sbornik Psychoanalytickych Praci sold with 36 bids. And then there was the Antiquarian & Collectible top 5 seller. After selling a Plath/Hughes signed book to a novice buyer, the seller changed names and went to private feedback.
