Book Selling

I've decided to only go to the post office Monday, Wednesday, Friday mornings (lunch time at the latest). Over the weekend, I sold a Physiology text book for $17 that I picked up for $0.25. Last night, I sold a self-help workbook for $0.50 on Amazon.com. Amazon took over $2 in commissions. This is why amazon marketplace stinks. The cool thing was that someone in Australia bought it! I got to send something overseas! Kinda cool, but I didn't even break even on that book. Annoying. When I got home from work, I had another sale from Amazon (an occult book) that I had double listed on half.com, too. I would have rather it sold on half (because of the commission), but I picked it up for free and sold it for $20, so no harm done. :-) That is going out on Wednesday. Hopefully I'll have another sale or two before that so I don't have to go to the post office for one package. It's not that far away from work, but sometimes the wait is amazingly annoying. Today I waited for 20 minutes. And there were only 2 people in front of me in line. Ridiculous. Maybe if the USPS realized they were in the service industry, they'd be doing better all around. Maybe not.
