Goodbye ABE Books

Death knell for ABEBooks

I will never forget the first time I found the Advance Book Exchange. I have used it nearly everyday of my life since I first found it. It got me started selling books. I started selling books on ABE not long after that. But the wheel has turned full circle I no longer sell my books on ABE its not worth it. Now maybe I haven’t adapted quick enough, in some respects this is right.  I didn’t think I would ever leave but you cannot ignore the economics.

All is not lost

There are a few other sellers that don’t charge subscription fees. So I have my books listed on those sites. While they don’t quite have the slick interface the made ABE so good.
