I've bought some useless garbage at the 99 Cents Only store before, but this I refuse!

    Was shopping for some cheap sh-- at the local dollar store when I noticed this crap in a book bargain bin...Nope, not even worth spending the dollar and eight cents after tax...


    Sorry for the blurriness..I guess I've dropped my phone one too many times.

    Are you sure you didn't find the book and place it in the 99c bin and take a photo?

    If that's really supposed to be 99 cents, that picture is absolutely golden.
    Which dollar store was it? He'll buy overstock and close out inventory from manufacturers and other retailers at cost and unload it for a small profit. This is awesome!

    There are chain 99 cent stores and independent ones. There's one not too far from me where it's all 0.99-$4.99, all ending in 99 cents. Whatever the price point is, I think we can determine it was officially a commercial failure.

    It was one of the chain ones, so if you have one near you that looks like this you may be able to pick one of these literary masterpieces up: [​IMG]

    Yes, do. And then you can try to flip it on eBay for 1.25

    He probably fished it out of the garbage and put it in the 99c bin.

    The top of the book in the picture is too thick in comparison to the rest of it. Nice try, though.

    I bet if you look on Amazon, you could buy one used for a dollar. I just looked. You can buy one for .01 but shipping is 3.99.

    What's not to believe? A shit book at a discount store on sale for 99 cents and still no buyers. Seems plausible to me.
