    A quick post for bricks and mortar bookshop owners, booksellers, bookscouts and book collectors alike- take a quick look on your shelves to see if you might have a copy of the 1994 Everyman's Library edition of Evelyn Waugh's "Sword of Honour" trilogy lying around collecting dust. I recently listed a copy (sans dust jacket) for over $100.  I get the feeling that this is one of those temporary market spikes where copies have become relatively scarce and in high demand (273K sales rank on Amazon) around the Holidays, and it will most likely return to more realistic prices after the New Year.  In other words, if you held stock in this book, now would be the time to SELL HIGH.
