Book Pricing Strategies-

There's been a lot of confusion over the years as to how booksellers price their books. In order to bring some transparency to the situation, we are going to begin being really, really honest and including a key at the back of every catalog we issue-

* -priced by guess & by gorry

** -priced by dartboard

*** -priced while drunk

**** -priced so as not to sell

***** -price on request: will be priced according to our estimate of the potential customer's ability to pay

I think that's fairly clear. And folks say selling old books is complicated...
