Selling some books - longer list to come

I've made mumbley mention of this now and again over the last several weeks, and am still not doing a bang-up job at sitting down and organizing everything. To help get this parade started, I'm putting up the first of what will be many lists of books for sale.

My thought is to use LiveJournal as a central data point, and then branch off into eBay or what-not as needed. This first list is a very sporadic selection from the hardcover and tradepaperback shelves, SO much more still to list...

I can take Paypal or checks (or cash for locals). Shipping is Media Mail, $3 for one book, $1 more for each additional book, $10 max shipping charge.

I want Tam Lin by Pamela Dean, please. More to come, I'm sure, as I read further but wanted that stake in. :)

My goodness. I had no idea my Cryptonomicon was worth so much! (also 1st ed HC, and signed, and I imagine I could get Bruce to also sign it if I wanted)

I've set prices based on either what Greg Ketter thinks they should be, or my (somewhat dated) memory, or a guess based on abebooks. Only time will tell if I've set them too high - and then they'll go lower!

I also have a few things that I'm not comfortable setting prices on (like the Master Li books) that I'm going to put on eBay.

Thanks for adopting from my crowd!

What is your eBay seller ID? How would we look for that stuff? Not that I have a book budget (I have one college-attending son and one world-traveling son and a bicycling habit that have sucked up the available cash), but you never know.

I will be sure to mention it here (as well as in FaceBook) once I actually post something there,but my ebay name is "alicebentley". And I really ought to get some of the weird stuff posted there soon - although I'm told that a holiday weekend is (surprisingly enough) NOT a good choice.

It's just as well that I don't feel the need to own collectible or even HC editions of books....

Tons of paperbacks to list as well - I'm just a little overwhelmed at the scale of the project.
