Alibris sales

Alibris made a small cameo at the tail end of a Wall Street Journal article today about Cyber Monday.

"... Another site reporting strong orders was online bookseller Alibris. Its sales appeared likely to end up at least 50% higher than the same day last year, says Brian Elliot, the company's chief operating officer. The site also saw "great" order volume over Thanksgiving weekend, up 60% compared to last year, he says."

Pui-Wing Tam, "Cyber Monday Sales Were Strong, Web Sites Say," Wall Street Journal, 11/29/2005, B9.

EDIT: Alibris' was conservative when talking to the WSJ, they have informed me that sales were up 100% - not 50% - with then entire weekend (Friday-Monday) up 70%.
