If someone from the forum or the mailing list wins, I'm going to throw in a $250 Cemetery Dance Gift Certificate for future orders because the shipping on this lot of books is insane due to the weight and number of boxes!

Got the party started. At worst with economy shipping I'll break even with the certificate and have a huge pile of free books.

HA! So international shipping has to be double insane!! :) So, $500 gift certificate for an international win? :)

International is $1400 :(

Yeah, it's pretty insane... it's a lot of heavy boxes, unfortunately. The USPS shipping rates are just killing everyone who have a lot of Non-US customers. I wish there was another way, but UPS and Fed-Ex are even worse and harder to deal with from what I hear.

Haha! I think you're absolutely right! That should be the new name for the auction!:D

Wow, $1400... I could buy plane tickets, come and pick them up, check them in as part carry on and part checked luggage, and fly back home for that price! (and its true, just checked!!) hmm... tempting... :D

Hmm...my brother's a flight planner with...I don't know who he's with anymore; maybe he's got some free passes I could use to scoot up there and bring those puppies back to Mizzoo!

You'd probably be better renting a U-haul and driving.

They're actually all out of Richard's office. They had to be removed before someone was killed by an avalanche of books!

Well, I didn't win The Gunslinger, so I might actually bid on this, at the last second. :rolleyes:

I'm tempted...as for shipping, I could just drive down there and pick them up. It's only 88 miles each way :)

i'd Have to do the media mail shipping. But it's tempting.

If you want it bid more then $96 if I still have the top bid.

You sound like you want someone to outbid you so you can tell yourself, I tried, but soemone wanted it more, rather than go through the hassle of retracting your bid! ;)

I've done that before....:rolleyes:

Not at all. My bid equals the $250 Cemetery Dance Gift Certificate. I'll end up spending that anyway and this way I'll get a bunch of free books with it. But if one of you guys really want it why not help you win it instead of someone I don't know.

I wish I had a lot of money to buy this. I don't have room for all those books, but I am sure there are enough to make it worth it for me since it would come with that gift certificate

$1400 for shipping. hahaha. I looked at the price and said hey if I resold them i'd make my money back but with that kind of shipping, not likely. lol

Yea it's a bit expensive for anyone outside the country. Then again it is also approximately 14 boxes at about 20 pounds a piece.

I understand the price thats for sure. It's alot of books. Just doesn't make sense for anyone outside the country. It's pricey enough inside the country. Prob why theres not many bids(on top of snipers anyway who are just waiting) If I lived in Maryland I'd go for it. lol

Yep, truthfully we weren't really expecting many bids on this. From my experience running these auctions we don't make a whole lot of money off of these "random book" auctions for books that are sent to us. Or I should say the amount of money we make vs. the ammount of man hours that goes into setting up the auctions don't really work out well. Which is why we decided to do a bulk auction this time. Though to be honest we may have gotten a little carried away with this one.

If I still lived in NJ I'd totally be all over this auction! A nice drive up to the CD office to pick it up would be an added bonus!:)
