AbeBooks’ Most Expensive Sales of 2010
I notice a lot of bloggers have already packed it in for Christmas. Part-timers! We’re still here and I’m back again tomorrow. The online bookselling business never sleeps – well, I do sleep but the machinery keeps on whirring and we do get orders on Christmas Day. I imagine they are from folks who thought they were getting a certain book (oohh, perhaps the Mark Twain autobiography) and were disappointed (oh, how lovely, Kardashian Konfidential by Kim Kardashian).
So today, we can offer you AbeBooks’ most expensive sales of 2010. We have the top 10 and also divided these big ticket purchases into several genres such as art, poetry, science and even books written by US presidents. It’s a fascinating list and shows that it was a bumper year for AbeBooks in terms of rare bookselling.
