- Reminds me of my $1,000 book. I never tire of telling the story, and
welcome any excuse to trot it out. <g> A while ago the eagerly awaited
"The Encyclopedia of Yacht Designers" by Lucia Del Sol Knight and Daniel
Bruce MacNaughton was finally printed. Unfortunately, they decided to go
for high-end production quality, and a price that ensured that it'd sell
mainly to institutions -- $250. :o( I've never paid $250 for a book. A few
years had passed, so I went looking on ABE for a used copy. There at the
end of a list of used ones starting at about $180 was a "New. Flawless
copy, brand new, pristine, never opened" copy for 981.08 plus $1.99
shipping!! A day or two later I was on Amazon.com and looked for the book
just for the heck of it. They had some "New. Flawless copy, brand new,
pristine, never opened" ones for $163.84 with FREE Super Saver Shipping! I
snatched one up. For a while after I got it I was afraid to open the
shrink wrap and destroy the value of my "$1,000 book". ;o)
