Economics and Finance are missing from that list.  Hopefully they are included under Science.

I routinely ignore posters with paid advertising in their sigs.  You should too.

Science fiction is also missing but I guess it's included under "fiction."

Honestly, I've purchased books in every one of those categories except "self-help".

Still around.

Are you opening a bookstore that takes bitcoin, by chance?  If you do, I'll be there so fast the virtual door will be off its hinges. Wink

Here's some of what I like/buy:

* Economics
* Espionage thrillers (fiction, like Le Carre)
* Fantasy (fiction, especially non-standard fantasy, *not* EFP) (EFP="extruded fantasy product", meaning bad Tolkien clones, etc.)
* History (non-fiction, especially U.S., Americas, Arabian countries, Russia, sub-Saharan East Africa, China)
* Magical Realism (fiction, Latin American, in Spanish is best)
* Mystery (fiction, like Conan Doyle, Dorothy Sayers, Elizabeth Peters, not so much hard-edged stuff)
* Political thrillers (fiction, like Ken Follett, Fletcher Knebel, or the early Tom Clancy)
* Political Science (non-fiction)
* Science (non-fiction, both technical and for the lay audience)
* Science Fiction (All kinds, esp. Russian SF in Russian)

This list is suggestions only, however.  I buy and read all sorts of books if they catch my eye.

Honestly I dont have time to do all the books as far as writing descriptions.... my question is now... When you look for books online do you usually know what your looking for?
or are you always book searching online?

Would it be annoying if i didn't write products descriptions for any book?

There will have to be a certain minimum amount of information provided: Category, Title, Author

Will they all be brand new? If not, then you'll have to include the condition of the book.

You'll post images, like all the other products, right? Otherwise, you'll have to say if it's paperback, hardback, etc.

Still around.

For me, it depends... But honestly I think every book I've bought in the last two years I've known exactly which book at the point I ordered it.

But then again often I'm looking between two, maybe three similar books. If I need a book on, say, a particular database topic, if I have to go to Amazon or similar to even figure out which book it is there's a pretty good chance I'm just going to buy it there instead of then go to a different site to spend bitcoins instead.

I would think there would have to be some automated way to get data like that though, because frankly every time I am looking online for some given book and I check five places to see who is cheapest all five places have the exact same description and information for the book.

Thank you for your detailed description of your exprience on purchasing books thats exactly what kind of answers i need.

and yeah you would think that suppliers would have an easy way to extract the descriptions... wierd thing is all my suppliers will give data exports for everything on every product, except product descriptions. Its not that suppliers don't give me products descriptions I'm for some reason forced to copy and paste and its very tedious. So I guess I'm left with the question to ask my self is "Is it worth it to copy and paste and waste the time per book and have less books in..... or is it worth it to add more book but none of them will have descriptions."

I'll assume "math" is in Science.

Occasionally Computers and Graphic Novels.

I'm rather good with Linux.  If you're having problems with your mining rig I'll help you out remotely for 0.05.  You can also propose a flat-rate for some particular task.  PM me for details.

Neal Stehpenson.  Nuff said.

Why? He doesn't finish his own books.

Charles Stross "Accelerando"  has some interesting discussion of alternative currencies and systems of economics, as well as some rather substantial computing structures Smiley

Any post about bitcoins that mentions B**** W***** gets moved to off-topic, yet threads about 'What are your favourite books?' remain in Bitcoin Discussion?
