Secondhand books

Readers, can I direct you to Liz Fielding's blog to read an interesting take on secondhand books from the writers' and publishers' point of view?

It's not just that we miss out on royalties when books are available secondhand online before they reach the stores. Liz has actually worked out that it's cheaper to buy the book new in the store than to buy it "used" and pay for postage.

I buy second hand books: but only books that are old. I think you can only buy books from the Australian Eharlequin site for 2 months and then they are gone forever to the big Library in the sky!!! I love the feel and the smell of new books though!!
