Update Announcements

As promised, Media Editor Catherine Petruccione's interview with bestselling mystery writer John Dunning appears today. His new book, The Bookwoman's Last Fling, is scheduled for release in late May, and Cathy, who has had the pleasure of reading it, reports that it's yet another successful entry in the popular Cliff Janeway series. For the uninitiated, Janeway is an antiquarian book dealer and now-and-again private investigator who inevitably finds himself embroiled in book-related adventures. If you're a bookseller, you've simply got to try a Janeway. Besides being entertained, you'll likely be surprised at how much you'll learn about books along the way.

Get your scouting books out again. You may recall my article on DVDs sometime back - how fitting them into your bookselling schemes can be both easily accomplished and profitable. Today the topic is VHS tapes, and if you think that they've been supplanted by DVDs, think again. Pick your spots, and results can be surprisingly rewarding as well. Here to show you what some of those spots are is new BookThink columnist William Klimon. Bill will tackling the topic of history in the coming months - both buying and selling history and, on occasion, reporting on historical aspects of books.

Also, I'd like to introduce Gen Kazdin to BookThinkers (some of you IOBA members may already know her). Soon, Gen will be evaluating many bookselling references for us that haven't yet made it to our BookShelf page. If she's gives a book a thumb's up, she'll write a short review, and we'll add it to our store for your convenience. If you have any recommendations for books that you'd like to see reviewed, write me at editor@bookthink.com and we'll do our best to follow through.
