New trend creates a nation of amateur booksellers
The Internet is creating a new and fast-growing category in the book-selling market -- the barely-used book.

These aren't yellowing copies of out-of-print titles but often unblemished copies of newly published books -- sometimes available just a few days after a book's official publication date. Details from The Wall Street Journal Online.
