From the Publisher:

In Lime-green Laptop Irene Black has used the experience gained over five
years of trading on eBay to describe one hundred of her most interesting,
entertaining, sometimes lucrative and occasionally disastrous sales. Each
page is devoted to one item and carries a picture, a description, the
purchase and sale price, and, as Irene says in her foreword "some
additional trivia". The "trivia" consists of hilarious, fascinating and
sometimes useful observations.

About the Author:

Irene Black is first and foremost a novelist. Her first full
length novel "The Moon's Complexion", was published in 2005 and can be
bought on Amazon. She worked as a research psychologist in England, in
Australia at Melbourne University and in New York, where she worked on the
Apollo Space Program (mainly doing unbelievably ghastly things to
unsuspecting volunteers!). After her return to England she began to teach,
ultimately becoming Head of Modern Languages at a large comprehensive
school in Surrey. In 1999 a spinal injury forced her to give up this post
giving her back her life and enabling her to concentrate on writing. In
2006 she completed an MA research degree in South Indian Temple art and
architecture. Her eBay adventures fund her extravagances, such as trips to
India. `Lime-green Laptop' is her first non-fiction book.
