  6. WINNERS: There were eight bids for ten items so everybody wins! Congratulations on all your winning bids. I will be in touch later today with instructions for making and verifying the UNICEF donations.

    BUY IT NOW: This item will remain active until the remaining two items are sold at a Buy It Now price of $10. What a bargain!

    • Sammy says:

      I think it’s only fair that the buy it now price be $60, since that’s what the last higest bid was at. I know it’s for charity, but that’s not very fair to the people paying top dollar and who bid accordingly.

      • You make a good point, although folks already had a five-day window in which to make a full-price bid. Let’s say that the buy it now price is a useful floor, but we also encourage folks to contemplate the ceiling or anything else in between.

  7. Sarah P says:

    I’d like to Buy it Now for $10!

  8. Cynthia says:

    I’d like to Buy It Now for $20 if the last book is still available.

  9. Thanks, Sarah P. and Cynthia. That will do it!
