Let’s sell your books on mercari.
Recently I spent a lot of time at home, due to the state of emergency and stay-at-home order. So, I read many books to kill time. I finished a really good book named「ぼくはイエローでホワイトで、ちょっとブルー」(I am yellow, white and a little bit blue). It was quite a popular book and was sold out on Amazon. I figured that many people would love to read it. So I decided to put it on mercari, which is an online shopping app, and see if I can share the fun with the next lucky reader.
The books were sold immediately.
When I posted 「ぼくはイエローでホワイトで、ちょっとブルー」on the app, the book was sold immediately (right away). The book is an essay with the subtitle “The Real British Secondary School Day”. It was easy to read. I was interested in learning the lifestyle of students in England.
Actually, I have sold some books on mercari in a month. Because everybody is staying at home and has a lot of time to read books after the state of emergency was declared.
The other day I sold 「AI vs. 教科書が読めない子供たち」(AI vs. Children who can’t read textbooks) in an hour.
I also sold 4 old cook books, one of them was 「アリス・ウォータースの世界」(World of Alice Waters). Although it was 1900 yen, it was sold quickly too.
Other books I sold was an art book.
We have too much time on our hands
Whenever I received an order, I mailed them in 24 hours.
I have enough time to do it.
I imagined my customers wanted to get the books as soon as possible.
Because everybody stays at home and wants to kill the time.
