Update Announcements

by Craig Stark

#130, 22 December 2008

In this month's update, three familiar features are in place - Pamela Palmer's Top 10 on eBay, QMR Book of the Month, and the Gold Edition Quotation of the Month. Top 10 includes some new but not surprising entries. Pam elaborates:

"Barack Obama vied with Audubon, Helmut Newton, and Alcoholics Anonymous in the non-fiction category and came in at #4, #5, #6 and #7 for Dreams from My Father and #4 for a signed ARC of The Audacity of Hope. Some were signed; others were mint. But even an unsigned good condition Dreams .... fetched $3,200.00. The fiction list was mainly populated by the usual suspects. There were 2 Flemings, 3 Tolkiens, 1 King and 1 Meyer listings.

"The usual super-seller from Hamburg, Germany took positions 2, 3, and 4 on the Antiquarian and Collectible list, losing out to an 1830 copy of The Book of Mormon in 1st place and Barack Obama's signed Dreams From My Father accompanied by his sophomore high school yearbook in 5th position. The latter attracted 64 bids."

If you could use some additional bookselling info going into the 2009 season, good news. BookThink's complete back issues package goes on sale immediately for $99.99 - regularly $149.99. This includes all Gold Edition and 50/50s published to date. It does not include QMRs. Purchase it here.

Also, take a look at some of our new offerings in the store. Example, our Pick 5 for $15 deal: Select any combination of five Gold Editions or 50/50s for only $15 - regularly $25. Purchase it here.
