Mrs. Lee's cookbook: Nonya recipes and other favourite recipes Hardcover by Chin Koon Lee (Author)
Later, after I'd had a chance to read it, I realized that while it did indeed fascinate me, the cooking techniques and the foods being prepared were more of a history lesson for me than anything else, and I made the decision to let this one fly the coop and off to Amazon it went.
I had done some basic research on bookfinder.com and also on Amazon, and so I priced this book very high by my standards. Truth is, though, I can't remember if this is one that I eventually marked down in price or not. And I also did not monitor the availability or price progression on this title, which now I rather wish I had, as this one sold for $89 while newer versions are marked at over $250. I may have left a lot of money on the invisible table by selling this, but that's not how I'm looking at it.
You see, I am fairly certain I only paid a few dollars for this book at a thrift shop, and even if you tack on the fees for storage, for shipping, and the fees associated with selling on Amazon, I had a WONDERFUL return on investment when this cooking book sold.
THAT is what I intend to focus on. However, should I see another copy of this book in a thrift shop, I will certainly be snatching it up and shipping it to Amazon at my earliest opportunity!
