Hi all, I have 156 books posted and I think I have a pretty decent shelf, a little of everything, I offered a 4 for 1 on paperbacks, 2 for 1 on hardcovers and 2 for 1 on paranormals, but No Takers... Is there something wrong with my shelf or am I not wording my subject right, I could really use some input on how to move these books, If anyone has any idea's I would really like to hear them,, thanks,,Della

I have noticed deals are not nearly as successful as they used to be. It doesn't seem to matter the genre (having cycled several on my shelf as an experiment).

I think the Book Bazaar was so successful it has undone itself.  Deals are no longer that interesting because they are so common!

I have better luck PMing folks who order from me offering a deal if they'd like more books than I do posting deals in the BB. (I do give a deadline for responding so they don't mail me after I've sent the book they ordered.)

I've noticed that myself about the deals not being as effective as used to be. I was wondering if it was just my deals or others as well. GUess now I know it's most of us huh..LOL. I've only offered one deal so far since I've been on here though and it was for the month or December, 2 for 1 and I did manage to get rid of about 20 books but it wasn't until like the last week though.

Good Luck on the deals everyone and Happy New Year! I won't be doing another deal for a couple months or so when I get a lot of the books read and posted that I have now that my shelf is low again :)
