History of my Paperback Books collection
These are my personal paperback books collection. I started buying and collecting these paperback books since many years ago.
I love reading books, either fiction or non fiction besides the more heavy text book stuff for business, history, archaeology, social and science books.
I bought these paperback books in Indonesia and from overseas when I am on business trips, either new or second hand. The new and second hand books that I bought from overseas are mostly from the US, UK, Singapore and Australia.
In time I have accumulated hundreds of paperback books and text books of the more heavy and academic stuff.
But then what to do with these paperback books ? My bookcase is becoming full of it and I could not add more book cases in my study room.
Meantime, some of myfriends also asked me to sell their paperback books collection on my web.
Each book has the information for the number of pages, the condition of the book and Selling Price.
Let me explain about the coding that I use for the condition of a book. I use a range from 1 to 5 coding condition with reference to second hand books. New books has no coding for the condition of the book since they are new and would be in good condition.
Code 1 condition means that the book is in Bad condition (loose pages, torn pages, scratch or torn cover, brownish paper due to humidity and oxidation in a tropical climate like Indonesia) but still perfectly readable.
Code 2 means the condition of the book is Below Average but better than code 1 condition.
Code 3 means the book is in Average condition with minimal torn pages and scratch or torn cover but still brownish pages due to oxidation and humidity.
Code 4 is a book in Good condition but still brownish pages
Code 5 is what I call Very Good (for used books) condition for a second hand book. Good condition of front and back cover, still white pages and might look like a new book.
The Selling Price for each book is based on the number of pages and its condition. Using a formulae that I created, the prices would be automatically calculated using Excel. The prices are such that it is worthwhile for my troubles but still very economical in comparison to buying new paperback books from a bookstore which you would read it only once.
