I mostly just buy books at Amazon, and some of the prices are just stupid. For a used paperback that sold new for $7.99, some venders will charge 475, $150, $300, or even $600. No idea what they are up to, but it probably isn't honest.
Frankly, I think Amazon should cap Vender book prices at say $200. If a book is more valuable than $200, it should really be inspected (in person) by the buyer prior to purchase. Continuing to enable (whatever it is that's happening) is just asking for trouble or a lawsuit (or both).
