    Can I just point out that someone has bid up THE SHINING paperback up to $24.50? Is there something I'm missing here?
    Yeah, I'm watching it on ebay...and still more than four days left!

    I don't get The Shining either. It's a pretty beat up copy.

    I saw that. It was at around $85 when I saw it. I bid up to $130 before quitting, and it's at $147.50 right now. I'll pass!

    Part of it is reach. The other part that goes hand in hand with reach is that it puts eyes on the listings that wouldn't typically look at eBay. They may not necessarily know what something usually would go for and can't be bothered to do the research.

    For instance, the only current listing I'm watching is the ARCs of AS TIMELESS AS INFINITY. That auction is already over $100. Woe is me.
    The hot items definitely go very high. I believe that is directly related to their reach. Items can be had at value but if an item is hot you will see it go above what other sellers are getting. Regarding the mis-spelling, There was a time that I could find some nice items by the Steven King guy. eBay now searches Stephen King when you enter Steven King so that no longer works.

    Yeah, CD's eBay auctions always seem to go way above usual market prices. Confidence in the seller, I suppose. Good for CD, bad for those of us who are interested in some of their items.
    Well, this is a sought-after book. I picked up a mint signed copy of The Golden for $30 in the last round of CD auctions, so no complaints here. I think the higher selling prices are due to the large audience that see the auctions all at the same time. I've picked up some books from other sellers where tiles or authors were misspelled, so unless you were browsing by category/price, you'd never notice them.

    Not always, I recently received an older signed Matheson novel for $9.99, brand new.

    It felt like Gideon had sold out in record time. The demand for that edition is HUGE right now!

    Yes, I should have bought Gideon the Ninth when it was released. I hadn't read it at the time, and wasn't sure if it was something I'd really be interested in. By the time I read it, and really enjoyed it, too late!

    I'm running out of shelf space yet again, so I shouldn't be buying everything in sight. I have 38 books on order right now.

    Thanks for the response. 399 seems a little high considering the book was sold at $125. I mean I could see paying in the $200- $225 range?? I mean it’s not like we are talking a king limited edition here, I don’t think the value in this book has increased 300 percent in 2 years. I don’t know though, guess all I can do is make and offer and see what they say

    thanks again
