First of all, I’d like to apologize to Adam Bertram, author of Used Books: Big Business. I told him I would write a review about his e-book after I finished reading it because I thought it was one of the best if not THE best book I’ve read on selling used books online. I can say this folks because I sell books online (albeit not as much as Adam does), and his information is right on. That being said, I learned a lot from his book, and have been able to capitalize on the insider information he so readily shares. So Adam, please accept my apology for the tardiness of this review:)
Adam has since launched his revised copy of Used Books: Big Businessfor 2010. The world of online book selling constantly evolves, and Adam has gained additional expertise over the year since he released the first edition of his e-book, and he shares all of this in his new version, promising any new online used book seller a huge advantage in this ever-changing business. All of his professional secrets will have you up and running with all the tools needed to position yourself as a savvy veteran in the cash for used books market.
Today, Adam lists his inventory on ten different websites and averages around 20-25 orders per day. He says his life has been enriched enormously because of the money that he has made from this lark that turned into a brand new entrepreneurial opportunity. Selling books online has allowed his wife to quit her job in order to stay at home and raise their young daughter, which is a priceless reward in addition to the money that he has made.
