I've purchased 44 books and would like to know if I could sell them back?

Kind of think this is rather stupid. You should be able to sell them back even if it's only at 1/2 price

When you go see a movie, do you get to sell your ticket back to the theater?

You can sell all your used Kindle books back to the iTunes store.

They're offering as much as 75% of the full purchase price on books which haven't been read more than 5 times.

Why should they let you sell them back? There's no such thing as a used e-book.

It's time to come into the 21st century. Digital goods have brought us an entirely new way of dealing with sales etc.

You don't have to like it. The last time I tried to sell used books, I was lucky to get .50 cents a book. We have no used book stores in my town. So, selling books "back" to anyone has never really been an option for me.

What would Amazon need "used" ebooks for? They can already sell an unlimited number of copies of an ebook. A "used" one doesn't get them anything.

I watched last week's new episode of NCIS on television, and after watching it I sold it back to CBS for 48 dollars. So yes, this can be done.

Kindle books or iBooks? If it's Kindle books it's probably used as an incentive to switch from Kindle to iPad.

How would they know how many times a book has been read?

They can tell by the number of times the electrons have been folded.

I figured out how to unfold the electrons, so I am now going to sell all my used ebooks.

Good! It's about time we the customers let Big Publishing know we aren't going to take being cheated any more! I won't be happy until all e-books are FREE and I can sell them back for $9.99 EACH, since that's what Amazon PROMISED when the Kindle was released.

Too, I demand that I be compensated for each book transferred to my Kindle over my wi-fi account. That's MY bandwidth and I demand PAYMENT!

Although we talk about purchasing ebooks, we don't really buy or own them.

What you purchased was 44 of these: "right to keep a permanent copy of the applicable Digital Content and to view, use, and display such Digital Content an unlimited number of times, solely on the Device or as authorized by Amazon as part of the Service and solely for your personal, non-commercial use."

You don't have any books to sell back, all you have are 'rights' to hold and view copies of digital files.

Ah, now I get it. :)

I think I should be paid for my time spent reading the books.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 17, 2012, 12:51:05 PM PST
It is a little-know fact that the United States Treasury Department will reimburse you $5.52 per hour for each hour you spend reading each day, up to three hours a day.

You can claim this sum by completing a weekly DDS-415/BR at the Treasury Department's website.

You are wealth of information!

If I forward enough emails can I get more than $5.52 per hour or at least a free case of Diet Coke?

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 17, 2012, 12:56:47 PM PST
If you register your forwarded emails through the Microsoft Charity Email Tracking System, you may earn $3.78 per email *per forward.* Thus, if you you forward 10 emails registered through the MCETS, and each of the ten people to whom you forwarded them forwards those ten times, and so on, you could earn a steady $34,579.76 each week, TAX FREE.

But of course you knew that already.

Ah, since it's through Microsoft that explains why Bill Gates has been driving past my house. He's trying to deliver my check. I thought he was just wanting to ask me on a date.

In my Fantasy Baseball League, I once traded a player for beer vendor and three cases of Bud Lite. I figured the beer vendor might actually be able to throw the ball in the vicinity of home plate.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 17, 2012, 1:03:23 PM PST
If Bill Gates asks you out on a date say yes. And put out. Often. Even if you're a dude.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 17, 2012, 1:04:27 PM PST
Sounds like a good plan.

You shouldn't have picked Joe Charboneau to pitch for your team.
