Just had a book ordered that has been on my shelf for 3.5 years, ordered with another that's been sitting for 23 months!  I almost NEVER get orders for more than one book unless they are part of  a children's book club series.

If you have the space and don't mind storing them, they do eventually get ordered.  I just don't have the space anymore. But I used to post everything whether it had 1 copy or 1,000 in the system.

I have room for around 200 books so don't mind having some sit a long time.

Since you have very few books on your shelf, that limits your audience a bit.  Maybe if you put some of your authors in your subject line it would attract people looking for deals on those authors.  Also, try watching the Book Bazaar for those people posting that they're in search of deals on certain books or authors.  Good luck!
