ad deleted due to a bizarre, abnormally paranoid inividual below or perhaps an amazon seller who wants to promote and sell his/her books. all my books and their conditions were accurately stated and my sole purpose was to gain some of the money i spent buying these books which to reiterate, were barely used. i could continue on with the posting of the ad, but 1) you screwed up my ad and 2) you questioned my integrity and motives without knowing my true intentions which is more insulting than you may realize. good luck with you endeavors and i hope karma doesn't bite you in the a** in the future

You must be a 'genius' salesman(or woman) if you are able to sell Used books as New books. If that wasn't enough, you're able to sell Used(read: OLD, 2nd hand ... no matter what the condition is, the value only depreciates) books for more than what the New books cost. Maybe, those who don't do their research deserve these kind of awesome deals. :roll:

I don't see any reason to delete the ad or get all riled up. All you had to do was correct the information(which might not have been intentional) and maybe adjust the prices and make them reasonable to begin with, rather than waiting for someone to make a reasonable offer. I did not mean to insult you in any way and I apologize if it came that way(though I would rather you take it that way if you were intentionally trying to sell that Used Barron's book for more than the price of the New book). I understand that your sole purpose was to gain some money; and eventually, indirectly, help others save some money by buying for less. However, your posting came of as if you were trying to rip off already broke students(initially came to this thread to see if I could find a good deal; so not an Amazon seller ... have never sold a book on Amazon till now) and that's what made me a bit irritated and post here.

Friendly suggestions to correct the posting and go ahead once again with the ad(I don't want karma to bite me in the ass :wink: ):
You might want to list the books as Like New - in excellent condition rather than "New Book" as that's very misleading.
Reduce the price of Barron's book
Throw in free shipping to make the 1st 3 deals a bit more appealing

If you labeled used books as 'new', he was absolutely right to question you no matter your 'intentions'.

If you want to buy books off TLSers, do it from someone with more than 1 post.

Nietzsche_NYU wins the Internet. Well done (like this thread now is).
