Recycler Riches is a 10,000 word transcript of an interview with a man making 20k to 30k a month, buying books by the truckload for pennies each from the world's #1 most untapped book source.
The following is a true story.
- Nearly half-a-million dollars in gross profits over two years.
- A million books.
- Pennies each.
Bookseller Peter Valley had never heard numbers like this, but this is what he was hearing when he met a man we’ll call "Bookseller X." And this man had a story to tell:
- How he did almost half a million dollars in gross profits with used books.
- How he did it picking up from a single source.
- How he did it picking up books only twice a month.
It all started when Peter Valley was researching his book, Book Sourcing Secrets.
In doing the research, he wanted to include a chapter about wholesale book sourcing (buy books by the truckload from the paper-waste market) but he didn't have enough experience in this to write about it himself. So he tracked down an expert.
The man he tracked we'll call Bookseller X. And the information he had was so lucrative, Peter Valley actually paid him for an interview. (And it wasn’t cheap)
When Bookseller X got going, Valley knew this interview was way too lucrative to be reduced to a chapter in a book.
So Valley edited the interview down to 10,000 words, and releasd it in this limited paperback printing titled Recycler Riches.
The numbers Bookseller X did were staggering, and worth repeating: A million books. Half a million in sales. Books by the truckload for pennies each.
This is the most expensive 32-page book you'll ever buy. But inside, you'll get the blueprint of running a six or seven-figure Amazon bookselling empire.
