Book Review: The Joy of Collecting United States Coins, Volume 1, Obsolete United States Copper Large Cents

This is a short (21 page) introduction to collecting United States Large Cents. It is only available digitally and I think the price ($5.78) is unreasonably high considering both the length and the fact that there is nothing here you cannot find elsewhere for less money or even free.

Additionally, the photos (the few that there are) are formatted badly: every one has a cut off caption box as shown here.

I don't know why people produce books like this. It's not that the content is bad, but I just can't see many sales coming out of it, especially for 21 scant pages at that price. Why not throw that up on a free website and use Google Adsense as I do here? No, you wouldn't get rich from that, but you'd probably make more money than trying to sell it as an ebook!

I'll provide the Amazon link, but honestly I wouldn't bother with this one.

Note:  All my coins are in a safe deposit box.  I keep nothing in my home.
