The NYT Best Sellers List - At a Glance

This week in the Hardcover Advice category of the New York Times Best Sellers List, we find these familiar titles:

1. WOMEN FOOD AND GOD, by Geneen Roth
3. THE LAST LECTURE, by Randy Pausch with Jeffrey Zaslow
4. THE SECRET, by Rhonda Byrne
5. THE 4-HOUR WORKWEEK, by Timothy Ferriss

None of these titles are new to the Best Sellers list.  "Women Food and God" has been on the list for 18 weeks.  The success of this book certainly is not surprising.  The author, Geneen Roth, has been on the Oprah show twice so far.  Oprah is a big fan of this book and she has continually promoted it.  This book helps over-eaters find the underlying reasons for using food as an emotional buffer. Roth also provides seven basic guidelines for eating and other therapeutic self-help tools.

All of these titles can be found in print and in audio at  These audiobooks are on sale this week.  At The Quality Corner, audiobooks are always shipped for FREE.  Visit the Audiobooks Advice category for big savings!

Summer Reading List

It's hard to believe that the summer will be over in a few short weeks!  Where did the time go?  So far, it has been a good summer for me.  I love to read all year, but I especially enjoy reading during the summer.  I find more time to read - in the hammock, at the beach or park, and on vacation.  I always have a book in my hand during the summer months.

Every summer I make a list of the books I want to read.  Here is my personal summer reading list:

  • The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
  • Innocent by Scott Turow
  • The Help by Kathryn Stockett
  • The Girl Who Played With Fire by Stieg Larsson
I've already read the first one and I am currently reading the second book on my list.  I plan to write reviews for all of them, so stay tuned.  All of these books can be found in my store -

What books are you reading this summer?

eBay On Location

I had the privilege of attending the eBay On Location conference at the Hilton in Chicago on July 9-10.  It was a great conference!  I learned so many tips that I have already started implementing in order to grow my business.

I was very impressed by the way eBay had everything laid out.  The look of the conference was very modern.  The main ballroom where attendees gathered was all decked out in the signature eBay colors.  There were several "lounges" set up throughout the facility with white leather chairs where sellers could network comfortably.  Food and drinks were provided so that the entire atmosphere was comfortable and all felt welcome.

The event started on Friday evening with a welcome reception.  On Saturday, eBay offered concurrent sessions on various topics to help sellers grow their business.  Some of the topics included:
  • Strategies to Grow Your Business
  • The Power of Productivity
  • Know Your Numbers
I especially appreciated the opportunity to network with others that have eBay businesses.  I have found that I learn the most from other sellers.  I made some valuable connections during this conference.

As a result of what I learned at the conference, there is FREE SHIPPING on ALL hardcover books, audiobooks, and children's books at  Visit the store to see the latest and greatest improvements to The Quality Corner.
