Update Announcements

More fishy stuff in BookThink's Top 10 on eBay this month - another carp book, for one thing, and also a fishy auction. You may recall the firestorm of controversy that erupted in late November shortly before the release date of O.J. Simpson's If I did it. Several copies mysteriously surfaced - where else? - on eBay, and one auction closed at $8,300. After publisher HarperCollins agreed to halt distribution and destroy any existing copies, bidding on another copy reached $1,000,000, at which point eBay removed the auctions. How many copies survived? Nobody knows, but look for them to surface in the coming years and attract significant interest. Other auctions featured in today's Top 10 appear to be legitimate. Item numbers of all auctions may be acquired by subscribing to our free BookThink's Top 10 on eBay email list. Write me at editor@bookthink.com to subscribe.

Also today - another Bookseller Profile. Jeffrey and Jeanine Dyer of Aslan Books tell how they have built an Amazon business that allows Jeanine to both work full-time and care for three children.
