I'm a former bookstore owner who didn't have a backup plan for 9/11. Between leftover inventory and my personal collection…I've got waaaay too many books lying around my apartment and storage room gathering dust. Looking at my bank statement and looking at the shelves of books, I decided that it makes no sense to hold onto them. So welcome to my clearance sale!

Just to get the ball a-rolling, I've listed a mixture of old, new and in-between items at Amazon.com with prices ranging from $0.20 to $38.50. Said items will also be listed on here.

Why a blog and Amazon.com you ask? Well, I utilized Amazon for its quick uploading and wide customer base. Unfortunately, said ease of loading and wide customer base comes with a cost of $0.99 per item sold, as well as a 15% commission on the sale price.

The way I see it, although the blog will take longer to upload the items, when all the work is said and done, it will be a better proposition from your point of view, because the prices of the items will be 15% lower.

Take a look around, if you see anything you like, email me or post a comment. Let’s see if we can help each other out.

Btw...did I mention that subscribers will receive an additional 10% discount? Yes, you will!

In addition, to offset my angst at the inconsistencies with which we celebrate the season (IMHO), on top of my customary tithe, I'll be donating an additional 10% to my church's Mission Fund.

Don't be shy...tell a friend!

What a GREAT idea!

Um...will you allow guest bloggers who ALSO have too many books?

Hey Peter,

With regards to the blog:

Glad you think so!

With regards to the guest bloggers with excessive books:

Check back in a few days. By Monday, I should have an invitation page set up with guidelines for participation.

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by again. Your feedback is welcome and appreciated. Perhaps once this semester is over I can spend some time catching up on your blog and maybe buy a book or two. Happy Holidays!
