Amazon Marketplace – Top Selling Textbooks for Spring 2011
With the spring term over and the summer term under way, textbook sellers are making plans to list and sell on Amazon Marketplace for the upcoming fall term. To help you decide which used and new textbooks to include for sale on the Amazon Marketplace, we are providing the following list of bestselling textbook titles.
These textbooks were the Top 100 textbooks sold by Amazon Marketplace sellers during the peak weeks of the Spring 2011 textbook season. Please remember that due to seasonality, books that are big sellers for the spring term (January 2011) may not be indicative of the books that will sell in the fall term (September 2011). Also, historical sales on Amazon Marketplace may not be indicative of future sales, as used textbooks have a limited lifespan.
When listing textbooks, it is important to note the publication date and edition. For the best buying experience, sellers should be careful to match the ISBN of the textbook they're listing to the exact detail page on Amazon.com to ensure that the title and edition are correct. Sellers should also note differences in cover art when checking for matches.
For example, one of the top selling textbooks on this spring's list, Mankiw's Principles of Microeconomics is the 5th Edition published September 24, 2008, ISBN 978-0324589986. The 6th Edition of this textbook, ISBN 978-0538453042, was published on February 7, 2011. While older editions of this textbook have value and can be sold on Amazon Marketplace, demand for the most recent edition will likely increase. (You may notice that several of the top-selling textbooks on the Spring 2011 list have upgrade editions.)
