So this is the second time in 2013 that I have had an Amazon #1 Best Seller — last time exactly a month ago with my Comet ISON book. That time around I had cut the price of the book from $3.99 to 99 cents. This time around, with ‘Comets: 101 Facts & Trivia‘, a 99 cent book, I am giving it away for free — for 5 days.

Amazing. People won’t buy it for 99 cents but will take it if it is free. To be honest I am just happy that people are taking it. I don’t make any money from these books and royalties on 99 cents aren’t enough to even buy a cup of coffee. I am not sure if there is anything that you can buy these days for 37 cents — or at least something that I would want, given that I don’t eat candy or cakes.

But, it is fun.

The other Comet ISON book is #8.

Really does not mean a thing. Not much demand for books in this category.

So a SINGLE sale can send you to the top of the list!

Plus these are 99 cent books.

This just amuses me, but I have a low bar when it comes to things that amuse me.

Also look at the bottom row and the prices for ‘new and used’ printed books.

Yes, 1 cent, $0.01 (plus, typically $3.99 shipping).

I bought two Irving Stone 1st Edition books, yesterday, both on Michelangelo, for 1 cent!
That is what book sales have come to.
1 cent for a Irving Stone 1st Edition.
