Last week we brought out a few things about Barnes, but he doesn't seemed to have moved any closer to production.  I believe in CP when you bid at a certain point, the whole graph will move up to that point.  (please correct me if I am wrong)  So we were preaching to the choir.  If we really want Barnes to get out of CP and into production, we are going to have to just increase our bid.(I always bid the max on any CP I want, because it always goes for less and helps it get moving)

The fact that Barnes is over 10,000 pages of resources means we need to get a whack of people to sign up particularly if everyone wants to bid $20.

I bumped my bid from $30 to $50. That is a LOT of resource there, I'm just sayin' ......

Why doesn't everyone bid the max on every CP resource?  I mean, you 're not locked in to buying it if for some reason it did end up being higher than you would like. Bidding the max seems to me to be the way to get all the CP resources into production. Am I wrong?

My goal is not to get the book published.  My goal is to get books at the price I think I would be willing to pay for them.  It seems unfair to me bid more than I am willing to pay.

For those books that I have chosen to bid on, I have always placed a bid higher than they are finally  sold for.  But I only bid on about half of the books - though I have place bids on everything that is currently being offered through CP.

Blessings,
Floyd

Yea Dominick, if we can get more $30 to go to $50, and then hit 80% I think more people would get excited about it and push it over!!!!

Well if I'm only willing to pay $20 for a resource, but I bid $50, and it goes through at $50, I've lost my chance of getting the book for $20. Whereas bidding at $20 (my max), it will take longer, but I don't go over my max and still get the book.

 

Unless I've got CP wrong?

Bid at the current price point $30 and help get it over sooner. There's a good chance you will actually pay $20!

What happens with many of these CPs from my experience is that when they start to get close or they finally get enough bids, a whole bunch of people sign up and the price goes down.  I tend to bid high as a result, knowing that I have never had to pay my high price.

My bid is $80. I know the final price will probably be half that or less; but I would still buy it if the prepub price is 80.

yea Otto, I am with you.  Their is always a push of the bidding at the end and brings the price down.
