What's Hot? What's Not?
It's that most wonderful time of the month. The time when we high-tail it over to the Bookseller Blog to see how children's books have been selling on eBay lately. And what's this? What do I see for the month of October? Check it out:
Top ten children’s books sold on eBay during October:
GBP 1,019.99 - The Tale Of Peter Rabbit Beatrix Potter Undated..No Res
GBP 1,008.00 - THE HOBBIT-1ST EDITION 2ND IMPRESSION -JRR TOLKIEN-RARE
$1,484.99 - 1938 TOLKIEN THE HOBBIT HARDCOVER 1ST EDITIONElaine Krieg Smith had this to say about the sales:
Last month a first edition Huckleberry Finn sold for $4,726. This is the first one that sold over $1,000 all year. Two more copies showed up this month. I’ve noticed this phenomenom many times. A book will not appear in closed listings for a very long time. A copy comes up for sale and does well. Soon after, more copies are offered. Has anyone else noticed this?
EBay is a mysterious beastie indeed.
