The day time events for this Oxonmoot include some stalwarts (the Quiz, slideshow, Merry & Pippin's Dance Workshop, beer, the ITF meeting) but also talks that in places are in 3 streams. Speakers include Dimitra Fimi, Charles Bressler, and Angie Gardner. Plus we have the film "Born of Hope" being shown with a Q&A session after. Note bookings close 3rd Sept! And gremlins mean that online bookings are down so email or post your form (PDF available on website)


I notice that the fan film "Born of Hope" is now going to be screened at Oxonmoot, but I found this on their website. I wonder what happened.

Very similar to the bottom-feeders on Amazon (penny books) and ABE (dollar minimum). Some people will sell at any price (I guess it feels better than giving the book away). I have a minimum price that I do not sell below on any venue, but for the most part I agree - trade at bookstore, donate to library or Goodwill (charity organization around here), send to someone using bookmooch (bookmooch.com is great!) etc.

With careful management of costs, it is possible to make a few cents "profit" selling a book for a penny on Amazon. All it takes is using zero-cost packing materials and sending the cheapest possible method. There is a reason I don't buy penny books.

I have just bought a copy of "A Look Behind The Lord Of The Rings" by Lin Carter for £0.50 on eBay and £2 postage and packing. From my point of view that is very cheap but from the seller's point of view, this is really bad. I paid via Paypal using my credit card, so they were hit three times for charges, twice from Paypal (second time for Credit Card payment) and one from eBay for selling the item.

Additionally the book may cost more than £2 to send in postage and packing, my understanding is that you are not allowed to charge more than that for a book no matter the weight.

I personally do not sell any of my surplus books via eBay, I give them to charity shops instead, but I do feel sorry for this seller who is bound to be out of pocket.

What do others think?

Harrumph! Not the sort of people I like to do business with, either.
