I get by with a little help from my friends . . .  
If one were to sell a copy of Bono's photography book, String of Pearls, in mint condition and hand-numbered, how much should one charge? Dave Ramsey says "sell the stuff" and I'm considering doing just that. Any suggestions gratefully received. (And if anyone out there is interested in then buying said book, feel free to contact me!)

I have no idea, but HI! I don't see you on here anymore.

I haven't been on in ages, actually. I'm so busy these days, between work, the two boys, writing my Leppard story with my online buddy, and trying to find time to clean the house and sleep, that I can hardly find time for everything. Hope all is well with you, though. I follow your occasional tweets and facebook comments, so I keep a little informed about you at least. :D

They don't seem to come up often and a quick search of completed listings on Ebay shows one for 75GBP, Amazon has none, the only other one I can find is a bloke in Ireland with a classified ad selling it for 500Euro.

It's not a great time to be selling U2 memorabilia; several of the major collectors seem to be selling up and prices aren't good. But having said that, try the Collect_U2 mailing list on yahoogroups. If there's anyone serious about wanting this, they'll more than likely be there. Best of luck.

Thank you so much! I will check there to see what I can find. I didn't think to check the completed listings on Ebay, but I had tried current auctions with no luck. And yeah, I saw the bloke in Ireland, too, but I didn't know how realistic that price was. I was thinking probably around $125 US, but don't want to ask more than the normal going price, LOL. Hopefully I'll find someone willing to buy it. We're trying to rid ourselves of $12,000 in debt, and every little bit helps!

You could always put it on Ebay with a reserve of say $200 and see if anyone bites. It's a rare and desirable item; I think you should be able to sell it for a decent price. If you do put it up on Ebay, consider dropping a notice on the mailing list or the collectors' section of the various forums as well, just to let people know it's there.

I've seen that go for over two hundred quid a couple of times. I've always wanted a copy but there's no way I could run to it. But that doesn't stop me from "Window Shopping" now and then.

Hey, I know this is like... two years in the past, haha! I ended up here via google search when I was trying to figure out what the going rate on these is (as there is currently a copy up on eBay).

Do you still have your copy, by any chance? If so, are you still willing to sell?
