Question for Ebay Sellers Using Ebay Stores and Auctions both--Which Has Greater Percent Sales Per Listing?

I am considering opening an Ebay Store, but I want to weigh the benefits of doing such against the benefits of simply running auctions as I do now (a variety of stuff). I do moderately well on auctions, but I find the listing and relisting fees rather high. Does anyone have any data or insight on sell-through rates comparisons between Auctions and Stores? (Oh yes, I also sell on Amazon but with minimal inventory (usually higher end and rare books) and I find I only sell about a book every 3 months on there...any insights on minimum inventory to reach a workable sales stream would be appreciated too!)
