Basically, he claims he's working up to 80 hours per week for up to $1000 - that's $12.50 an hour. The one benefit to this over, say, working as a receptionist is that he can quite likely avoid reporting this income on his taxes.
Public libraries aren't bookstores.
Libraries already use software to decide what books to get rid of. Pretty soon that software will just print out price tags for each book based on the current price for used copies online, and these guys will be out of business. Enjoy it while it lasts!
Also, I think those handheld things are pretty expensive. One of our volunteers asked about getting one a couple of years ago and at that time they were upwards of a thousand dollars.
She believes that someone hires these groups of people, as they don't seem to speak English or have any actual interest in the books. It's actually a pretty smart plan
My point is that with this sort of mercenary, profit-at-all-costs possibly mindset deprives genuine readers from cheap books.
In packing the above book for shipment to you I noticed that my listing clerk, a college student whom I employ part-time, failed to state a condition remark that should have been included. I apologize for this oversight and *I have SERIOUSLY admonished her to be more careful* in the future.
The condition statements which should have been made are:
1) Our listing was for Volume 4 ONLY - *NOT ENTIRE SET OF 4 BOOKS*
If the book is not acceptable, I will be happy to give you a refund. *I will withhold shipment until I hear back from you.*
Again, please accept my apology for this oversight. To better say "I'm sorry" I will give you a 10 percent discount on any future order which you can place anytime. I will leave you positive feedback and will appreciate your doing the same. I am working 12 hrs a day at selling books on Amazon and eBay at $5 a pop average and trying to support a wife and child -- the last thing I need is bad feedback.
