It's been awhile since I've published a newsletter due to my relocation to Las Vegas. Now that the move is complete I'm ready to share a whole new group of bookselling ideas and tips with you.
Not only that, but some of my readers are offering up a few really outstanding tips, tricks, and techniques that will add huge dollars to your bottom line. For instance, Paul Steven's June 30th tips to another reader where so thorough and extensive that I had to create three separate web pages to include them all.
Also, Joanne's "The Book Whisperer" June 17th question about inventory turnover gave us an opportunity to discuss sales ranks and average cost per book that may shine a bright light on the subject for some new sellers.
Finally, Heidi's June 21st question about the cost of PDAs raised a few burining issues in the minds of many sellers trying to get into the bookselling business.

I unexpectedly was provided with the financial wherewithal today to buy a bar code scanner, an up-to-date cell phone (I have a very archaic one), your book, and more books to sell online. I clicked on your link to amazon.com for the Dell Axim x51 scanner and was quite put off by what I saw.
