Dang, Dang, and Double Dang.
I was bidding on a one-volume reprint of English Folk Songs from the Southern Appalachians. It was at $51 last night, and I decided to wait until just before the auction ended this morning. Five minutes before the auction ended, I had it for $62. Then, a minute before the auction ended, somebody bid above my maximum $75 bid. I took it up to $100, but was still outbid. Four seconds before the end of the auction, I chickened out.

I was so close.

Anybody have strategy advice for me?
How about some sympathy, too?
