I have essentially pulled all but a few titles from my little spot in the Amazon warehouse and I am still adding listings to my online store. It feels good to have an independent online presence. According to the various seller forums, I don’t think I could have timed it better. There are so manyContinue reading “Up and Running!”

Making It My Brand
Yes, I’ve been bad. I’ve been selling books on Amazon. I’ve learned my lesson. I will never build my brand (or at least not the brand I want) if I am selling on Amazon as a third-party reseller. It’s hard to give it up! It’s addictive. You find books, ship them to an Amazon warehouseContinue reading “Making It My Brand”
It is Alive!
I’ve got some inventory in place, some in a pile waiting to be listed, and more on it’s way. I’m making all these little decisions about which site and hosting to use and how to go about sourcing my books. I have my tax resale form saved and and copies of it completed and submittedContinue reading “It is Alive!”

A Little Bookstore
Kurt’s Books is on the way. Inventory is arriving daily and the website is being tweaked and prepared for launch. It will have a slightly better selection than the quaint little library seen here on the left, and it will improve, with your feedback, of course, over time. Keep an eye out for it. Kurt’sContinue reading “A Little Bookstore”
A Bit of a Damper
Obviously, global pandemics can be a bit of a damper on routine life and casual living. We all pivoted and adjusted accordingly, and now we are trying to safely ride out the rest of it and take on whatever else comes our way in these tumultuous times. There is the ever-growing list of anti-racism titlesContinue reading “A Bit of a Damper”
Scanning and Texting. Texting and Scanning.
I was at a local bookstore this past weekend, scouting books with my BlueTooth scanner, and my wife sent me a text to remind me of the incoming rain storms. I went to text her back to let her know I’d be heading back soon, and I couldn’t get the virtual keyboard to come upContinue reading “Scanning and Texting. Texting and Scanning.”
I got yelled at…twice.
Yes, I knew running around in public with a Bluetooth scanner scanning used retail books would eventually get me in trouble, but it just happens when you least expect it, and by the most unusual suspects. Alright. The first time was last week. I was going to a library sale, not the regular sale, butContinue reading “I got yelled at…twice.”
I’m Jumpin’ In
I haven’t posted in a few days but I haven’t been resting on my laurels. I’ve been busy researching all the retail arbitrage videos on YouTube and listening to Gary Vaynerchuk (which keeps me both hyped up and in touch with reality at the same time, which is very unique) and preparing to jump inContinue reading “I’m Jumpin’ In”
