Update Announcements

Our series on eBay bookselling resumes today with a guide to the eBayable book. What it is. Why it sells for more than it seems to have any business doing. And a few related matters as well - for example, why eBay should still be the go-to venue for some of our best books.

Look for a new feature in the March issue of BookThink's market report, 50/50. We've begun tracking movies, TV shows and plays that are currently in production but not yet released, and we'll be tagging productions based on previously published books. As many of you know, the release of a movie, especially one that proves popular, can often produce a spike in demand for the book it was based on. Obviously, this is speculative stuff, but we'll attempt to identify a handful of books in each issue that we think will have the best chance of taking a significant jump in value when their respective movie versions are released. This will give you plenty of time to stock up on cheap copies and later - we hope - resell them for profit. Needless to say, our recommendations will be accompanied by a loud and clear caveat emptor. Not yet subscribed? You can get it done here.
