Amazon does buy books and mark them up - but they buy them at a discount
and mark them up somewhat - they do need to make some profit - they lost
what, 1.5 MM USD last year or last quarter? I give them a 20% discount on
what they buy from me.
Mandatory Audi content - went to Orlando saturday and Lakeland sunday, saw
my exact car on I-drive, same color, year, model, got a huge smile from the
owner. Life can be good - put 350+ miles on, highway driving, sunroof open,
nothing broke, with the woman who loves me (my wife) in attendance. Also
went to "high-roller" shindig, parking lot was full of rental cars, the 86
5Ks was the nicest car there!
We've been right all along!!!!!!
