Today as an experiment I listed one copy of Photographer’s Guide to the Canon PowerShot S100 on eBay, with a low starting price of $9.95, which is considerably less than it costs me to print a copy of the book, and less than half the normal selling price on Amazon.com and elsewhere of $24.95. I’m also offering a reduced shipping rate of $3.95 for Priority Mail in the United States or $6.95 for First Class Mail International to anywhere else in the world. These shipping rates are considerable bargains, because Priority Mail normally starts at about $4.95 and international shipping usually is at least $13.18.
It will be interesting to see if this copy of the book sells. I hope the auction at least brings the book to the attention of a new audience — the people who are looking on eBay for an S100 or accessories for it, and happen to find the book. I’ll post the results of the auction in about a week. Here is a link to the eBay auction.
