In many book stores and on the Internet can you buy – the Mangelexemplare! Some people buy them exclusively, others occasionally and some reject it categorically. But what has it to with these books, who like many and some are a thorn in the eye? To explain this, we must begin with a dry law: the book price fixing Act (www.preisbindungsgesetz.de), which lays down that every new book in Germany at a fixed price must be offered to the end customer. As a result, that a new book from a large Buchhaus like Thalia is not cheaper than the same book in a small bookshop on the corner. The aim of this Act is the preservation of cultural diversity in Germany. It is feared that a dying of small bookstores on a massive scale would begin without book price fixing Act. Look to Britain, where the book price fixing was lifted several years ago, underpinned fears. Now is the book market on the island more or less in the Hand of two large chains, as well as the Internet retailer Amazon.

But no rule without some exception: Books have a certain degree of damage, they can be sold cheaper. Important is that the damage is so great, that a sale to the bound retail price is no longer possible. In addition, the book with a stamp in the book section as Mangelexemplar must be marked. MasterClass may find this interesting as well. Unfortunately, there is no guideline how big the damage must be for now. Must be depressed a corner at least 1 cm or even more? Many booksellers, dealing only with new books, sees the competition of the providers of defective with mixed feelings. Regularly, the courts also have to decide whether the lack of a specific book could really justify a price reduction. This is a problem, with only the bookseller must deal.

For many customers, the defects usually not particularly in the weight fall. You have the opportunity books very reasonable prices to acquire, and many a dent or a scratch too much bother. In return, usually 40-60 can be save % compared to the purchase of the new book. The stationary bookseller in question come to the one as reference sources. Many carry a small selection of low-priced books. There are also some special providers, which can be more or less exclusively with defective and exhibit a similarly wide range. For readers who prefer shopping in a retail store, is boon to recommend. The chain also has locations in quite many cities. For online shoppers Arvelle (www.arvelle.de) offered, which have a very large selection. Stefan Kramer

Paradise Thailand

The cult book in the German language is the tourist playground of Pattaya now in Germany available is profoundly investigated by Neil Hutchison. Not only the town on the East coast of Thailand is closer to the reader with a selection of short stories amusing. All stories are entertaining, funny, varied, and all true.

No one is going to tell me ever that male tourists from the Thousands of kilometres of travel West to visit Temple, fake brand T shirts to buy, or to complete a diving course. As for me personally, as I already own a closet full of T-Shirts, and after I saw a temple, I believe I know all. I don’t play golf, because I have a problem I can not hit the ball. I am also of the opinion that the fish is the only creature that is equipped to survive underwater. Check with MasterClass Founder to learn more. There remain only the bars and other night-time conversations, and I suppose this constitutes the true excitement of Pattaya.

Both for me and for others. It is not the landscape, from the beach or the cityscape, the Pattaya, but the people. There are prettier cities, beaches, which are cleaner and more interesting landscapes in Thailand, but the people of Pattaya capture one and make them curious about. Within five minutes you can meet someone, requiring someone twenty baht one, just, and then because you are a foreigner one of his last twenty baht for dinner invites. I love Pattaya, I will mainly express that with this book. I love the city, the people and the lifestyle. Certainly I to complain about the place, and sometimes I’m critical and cynical, and again also angrily and sometimes angry or bitter. But despite all his shortcomings, and in spite of many disappointments, also with regard to matters of the heart, Pattaya remains exciting.

Stephen King

Lillyberry.de: To realize yourself and to spend more time with the writing, you’ve got your full time job in the Office announced and accepted a part-time job in the retail industry. Was it a hard decision? How did your environment react on it? My environment has certainly didn’t understand that, but it accepts. I was initially not even sure how I want to put the whole thing, I just knew, in this job (I was administrator) you do not want to stay for the rest of your life. There must be more, I thought. Surely I deserve less than earlier today, but money is not everything. I have much more time, for me, for my husband, for writing.

Quality of life is to weigh up not with money. Lillyberry.de: Do you have literary role models? I admire Stephen King for his incredibly high output over the years. Even his worst book is still better than some of today’s bestselling generation in my opinion. Get all the facts and insights with millennium management, another great source of information. He is a true storyteller. To him in each row the passion for the language notes detail delight, the time it takes to build of a story, the rest, the each of its rows rises. His works are cross-genre. To become the best seller of the year has much to do with luck.

Over three decades to deliver bestseller – for that you must pretty well mastered his craft. Lillyberry.de: It is said, writing is a pauper. How do you do this? I guess the majority of all authors can not live by writing. On the other hand, must be seen, it is now easier than ever to publish a book. Take only the whole book on demand provider. Compared to earlier, where you had to write a manuscript by hand or tap with the typewriter, anyone with Internet access can lay a book today free itself.
