Auction # 1: Quiet Please by Scott Douglas
The auctions have begun! This first one will be at my blog...so nothing at Chelsea's yet (don't worry...I'll let you know if there is!). The first book up for auction is Quiet Please: Dispatches from a Public Librarian by Scott Douglas (and marked up by the author himself!)
Here is the book summary if you have not heard of this book before!
A few details about the auctions:
** HOW TO BID: Leave a comment with the amount you want to bid for. The Leave a Mark page on First Book is ONLY for the winner...if you bid the most, you donate through that site that amount and Chelsea or I will mail you the book!
**The first person who bids has to START at five dollars, so each book will sell for at least that much. If you want to bid above that, it has to go up in fifty cent increments, so people are going up by a penny or a dime.
Ex. Starts at five dollars, will go to five fifty, will go to six dollars, etc.
**We will give a loose finishing date for each book being auctioned, but it might change, so just keep checking the blog and make sure when it has ended or not. This will help us and you in the long run!
**If you are an author and want to mark up your book, please get in touch. We'd love to have you! If you don't have time or don't like to mark up books, feel free to get in touch about sending us any promo items to include with the books when people bid on them.
** ALL PROCEEDS will go to First Book, so keep that in mind!!
They have a page set up for us as well, where you will donate your money if you are the highest bidder. That is here: Leave a Mark site!
This Auction will end Friday, October 10. Again...that might be postponed.
Any questions? Let me know and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
