Times is still hard

Okay, so. We're going to be able to beg, borrow and steal the money we need by April 15--more like "borrow, charge and scrape together"--but then of course we'll have to pay it back and/or off. But we're not immediately screwed. Also, I went and found my cache of hardback 15M books, and there's only six--even fewer than I thought. Woe.

I need to put them on eBay--let the market decide the price, basically--but I'm kind of terrified of eBay. I'm scared of Doing It Wrong somehow. I've bought things there before, but never sold anything. I keep trying to remind myself than I can just pull the auction (can't I?) if I screw something up. This is, in fact, why I've had a handful of things for about five years now that I've never sold--I'm too chickenshit, basically. I'm also trying to remind myself that complete morons manage to sell things on eBay everyday, so surely I can't get myself into too much trouble. (Can I?)

Anyway.
