I guess what I should have asked is whether you think $25/hour is a fair price for bookkeeping, including setting up the books and preparing the schedule C, and potentially quarterly sales tax returns.

Seems very low to me. I wouldn't want a $25/hr accountant handling my business matters.

At the rule-of-thumb for determining fees that has been discussed on this board previously, $25/hr equates to $25,000/year. That's low for professional services - for that matter, it's low for many low-skill services.
