Just thought that my fellow divers would like to know that I'm still diving books (with Dwalin's help) and selling them on half.com and Amazon. Last year, I sold 649 books. Prices tend to be slightly higher on Amazon than on half.com, and fortunately I sell more about twice as many books there, too.

I've had a few great triumphs that make me happy I'm in the book-relocation business. For example, two weeks ago I dived a book that had clearly been donated to the library and rejected. It was a book on some health care laws and regulations, and it was in very good shape. I'm guessing that the library thought it was too specialized. There were *none* listed on either half.com or Amazon, but Amazon had a pre-order for it -- for $100. Easiest $84 I've ever made!

I'm also still mailing the books out using stamps I get at below face value on eBay. Tons of fun!

So what diving adventures have the rest of you had lately?
