It happened to me very often.
At the state of anguish, I always wanted to sell all those thick, big textbooks from my home. So that I (or rather my husband) don’t have to carry the lot up and down when I move houses. Then when the orders came through, and I changed my mind. I thought about it for a long while. £2 profit for a reading about Warren Buffet’s investment secrets? What?!! I don’t earn anything (due to the high postage to other European countries)? Mergers, take overs and Corporate governance, hmm this is my MBA textbook sounds interesting, shouldn’t I keep it to read it sometimes so that I could be a finance expert? Didn’t I paid for astronomical MBA tuition fees to get a lot out of this? I haven’t even read more than 5 pages of the book?!! Sometimes I changed my mind, I do a refund and said that I do not have inventory.
That’s what I did, it is going to cost me £6.50 to send it over to Netherland. I went to the Reading Central library, came out with three books, travel books on China and Paul Theroux’s The Great Railway Bazaar; and Haruki Murakami’s End of the World. I am not going to read finance textbooks, am I? :p
I’ll buy a new Finance book when I want to read about Mergers, take overs and Corporate governance. I wrote : “Good luck with the book” to the buyer. 1.2 kg, is a heavy book. After I sent it off, I felt a little lighter.
