eCRATER is a little known place, where I can enter all my books for free, pay nothing to them when I sell books, or other items.  Then its also a place where you don’t have to pay allot when you buy…. I only charge 00.45 to 2.00 for used books… depending on shape they are in and size.  I have Harlequin which I can not sell on Ebay or Amazon as I would have to charge over a 1.00  Both these other stores charge huge fee’s which like any other business I would pass on to you so I could make money. I have a book in both these stores and I also have it in eCrater… You can see the difference in pricing… Check out “Waiting for Agnes by Joe Bullard.. its a new personally autographed book about the Coral Castle in Homestead,Fl. Its the only book I have been selling for awhile… People are not checking out my eCRATER store even though its easy to look at and over 1200 items in it. New and Used Books, audio,LARGE PRINT,Cd’s, collectibles, stuffed animals, flip flops (homemade decorated) We also have a big collection of Nora Roberts, and Debbie Macomber, Diana Palmer,James Patterson,and many more. We have over 120 named authors as well as ones in sections of Romance, Mystery,Fantasy,Religion and more.  We offer you two ways to buy… Papal and money order, with paypal its harder to offer you a shipping discount. But if you trust us..we will send you a refund after we process your order.  With money order we will send you the right bill before you send it… What we offer is When you buy more than one book first or most expenxive is shipping  full price and everyone after is 1.00  … Another deal is if you buy 4 or more books you get one free.. You email us with the choice and we take it off line for you… It must be one of the same or lesser value.

I hope we have answered all questions if not make a comment or email us at   our store is at  or   

You can follow us on twitter or here on our blog if you have something you would like to know about let us know.. we are open to new idea’s we try to follow blog hops… or we might lead you back to another blog that we though was great… Become a regular follower… We’d love to have you on board.. It gets lonely here by ourselves…Come back often and we love comments.

Put in 15 books in my eCRATER store yesterday. Several of the books I had read over the years.. They are good … Geralyn Dawson’s “My Big Old Texas Heartache”  Rachel Gibon’s “Not Another Bad Date”, just to name a couple… Have over 1200 books in my store and growing. Over 125 authors in category section I have over 1000 more books to put in..Going to take a brake this week on putting and more books and concentrate on a bottom of a book of shot glasses to go in my store for them at Shotglassheaven. This box has been eye balling me for a while now.. So around 5am I emptied it onto my desk… (I never say our desk) it belongs to Gene too… He just does not use it as much as I do… Anyways have over 30 shots to take pictures of and enter into store..

I would love to write about interesting things we do.. If we did any…Gene made me scrambled eggs with cheese this morning… I called and left a I love you message on my daughters cellphone… She can’t talk while at work so I leave messages she will see when she take a brake or goes to lunch.. Oh went and got a hair trim when I picked up some more books”Waiting for Agnes”.

Well chop chop back to work… Have a great day…

Love to read, turned a hobby into a pretty good store for a very long time… Last year after 4 yrs of higher and higher prices, and changed rules more often than we can count, we moved from eBay to eCRATER. 

There are only two things I can’t do at the new store or you can’t do..Move from one persons books to another.. example 1 (search for one title and find every book in ebay with that title so you get lots of sellers offerings. In eCrater you go from one store to another and look at all the persons books..) 2nd example (shipping discounts.. can’t offer them directly like before.. If you want a shipping discount you must pay full price andI will send you back a refund as soon as I get your order.  shipping discount is buy first book or largest weighting book in your choice of books pay full price  every book after in the SAME order is $1.00 shipping and handling.  The only way to do this in eCRATER is to payful price and I will send you a refund as soon as I get the order… Of course if you do money order you can have your discount right away… as you are mailing me amount after I send bill …

I offer over 1000 books and other items in my store come take a look… Over 100 authors listed by name and some are in random spots where they belong, romance, mystery etc.. We even have two books autographed personally by authors… Debbie Macomber and Joe Bullard  Have summer Flip Flops  Patricia Rice , Nora Roberts , childrens  Johanna Lindsey Fanatsy  These are just a few… We offer CD’s and Cassettes for talking books, we have music CD’s from some of my favorite singers, Reba, Collin Raye, Garth Brooks. We have Harliquin at new low prices  Come see our store at or We do have one book in both ebay and amazon.. “Waiting for Agnes” is offered in three places at three different prices. This is because the companys have different prices they charge to sell for me.. eCRATER is the lowest as they do not charge me anthing to sell there… So again eCRATER has the best deals… I have lower priced books and will offer a shipping discount when asked…any questions  email me at If you need references go to eBay and see my over 2000 feedbacks.. Have a great day.  Picture of the day……….

Have not done allot with mine… I may not for awhile… I have music on it… I have been told I can put books on it… I feel like I am cheating allotof people out of a good read when I get done.  And my used book store would suffer.. Of course I don’t know how it could be any worse than it is now… I am the only one writing and reading. This is why I have never become a writer my stories and grammar are only good enough for me to read.  I had a grandma who would correct my grammar when I would write her letters and send them back to me… I never looked at them I was so upset that she would do it… My other grandma would take cards some one has sent to her and cross out words and put her own in.. I thought this was wonderful that she would take the time to do that…. I found out when I lived with this grandma that she could draw… I never knew that.. she was really good… She would not draw much as her family made fun of her… Well I guess you know who I take after… I have thought up some good stories… I have pretended to be someone else all my life… Well I don’t have to pretend thanks to my wonderful family I have a wonderful life now. My children my husband and the children he has brought to this marriage has made my life what I have always dreamed of… May everyone know such happiness.. Of course there are days I want something everyone does.. I would love travel,visit family and friends, see places I have never been.. Due to allot of reasons this will never happen.. I don’t go further than 1hr away from my house anyone time… Did you know there are allot of things with in one hr of someones house… If I could get it up to 2 1/2 I could really have a great time.. see Mickey or grandchildren, nieces and nephew.  Can’t wait till winter comes so we can go back to Fridays and see our family that we always have lunch with.. Some are doing other things over summer… Have a good one .. My dear friend who has been my friend for over 45 yrs… and I send a friendship ball back and forth to each other every month.. this is a silver ball that opens and you put something inside and give it to someone in friendship.. My sister in law has loved the idea ever sense she heard about… This past year I found a second ball and started sending it to her over the summer… She and I both have got the first send and now its on its way back to her I hope she like what I sent …. If anyone has rambled its surely me today…. What a day for someone to read this… I am listening to Cher on my iPod, I have Reba, George Strait, Garth Brooks and Michael Buble I might get some early tunes of MJ  but not sure…  If you read this please send someone else to read my mess… LOL…. Have a great day…. I am off to put some wonderful writers into my bookstore for someone to see and just have to you are    Thankgoodness for spell check…

Our second set of family has come and gone..We had so much fun.. Those of the privileged few who are on our facebook can see pictures of family and places we went… They went down the river while I went junk shopping in town… We had lunch and then they went swimming in the river.. Made a whole day of it.. Was so much fun…. We went to Stephen Foster State Park got to see two museum’s… you can see that in pictures also… Other family that came Gene took them to the river as I was not feeling well.. I have pulled some muscles and I get up very sore and takes a while to get untangled …so to speak…

I sold something on my eCRATER store this week … Thanks to the person and please send your friends and tell their friends and their friends and so forth.. Buy four books get a fifth one free… In the United States, shipping and handling is full price on first book and everyone after is one dollar each..  We are putting more and more things in everyweek.. I have to catch up with what I started last week as I did not finish before kids got here and I took time off.. I did fill my orders and mail them… Have to go to the post office today with two orders… maybe by this afternoon I will have more… check out my books and other things at  or 

Today I will be putting in the rest of my Carley Phillips and Shannon Drake,Heather Graham Pozzessere, Christina Dodd.  I have lots of books I have not had a chance to get to so if you are looking for something special (not new) I will most likely have it in the back stock waiting to go in.

Went to doctors found out that I have pulled a lot of muscles, starting with my shoulders and arms and working down to my stomach.  And I thought I had an ulcer.. see how wrong we are to do our own doctoring… Well gave me a muscle relaxer and told me to get a 5lb weight and start exercising … And I am telling you know I am going to do it… I don’t like feeling like this.. and if it helps me loose weight that is a bonus…I am no different than anyone else I do so well at loosing and then gain it back.. 

When the kids come next week I won’t beable to go tubing as I am to big and clumbsy(sp) to go on the tube  I did it last year once and fell in the river the next time.. and I am heavier now so will watch and take pictures. Can’t wait for all the kids to get here… wish they all were coming… I would even go get more blowup mattresses…

I put in some work on my book store this morning.. Put in three authors books, John Saul  Jeff Shaara Tess Gerritsen  http://tessgerritsen    Have many more to go this week like Nora Roberts  “The Pagan Stone”  book thee of the Sign of Seven Trilogy
