*The one thing I hate about these book sales is all the rare/used book dealers who rummage through everything with their ipads etc. checking values and trying to get anything valuable for resale.  Heard two dealers discuss and reject this one because only the Conan stories sell.   Philistines.

  1. Our library book sale banned scanners because of resellers. A book dealer comes in before our sale to price our rare/vintage stuff and gets some books for free in exchange.

    • That’s a good way to handle this!
      Of course eight or nine years ago I’d see people with binders full of book prices doing the same thing, more slowly. The complication is that the book sale makes a bunch of money for the Friends as they hold a members-only pre-sale and all the dealers naturally come for that and pay dues, so it may be hard to convince the Friends to change what they’re doing.
