Part I: The Basics

Gold Edition #10

$5

Big profits in common magazines? Well, if there are any secrets to making a good living in the book biz, selling magazines – yes, common ones included – may be one of the best kept. And yet, given the huge numbers that many magazines were printed in, not to mention the frequency with which even vintage or antique examples surface at estate sales, auctions and other venues, it seems, at first glance, unlikely that many of them would be worth bothering with. Au contraire, ALMOST ALL OF THEM are worth bothering with – in fact, they can be as profitable as high end books. How can this be? Get the answer is in this month’s Gold Edition. Purchase this issue today or subscribe to BookThink's Gold Edition for monthly insider information for booksellers.

How to Buy & Sell Foreign Books

Gold Edition #17

$5

If you sell books written in only one language, you will effectively eliminate the majority of this planet's books from your pool of potential inventory. Unless you have - or can consistently acquire - more quality books in your native language than you know what to do with, therefore, it makes sense to at least consider foreign language books when they become available for sale. There are challenges, of course, with both buying and selling them, but to a significant extent these can be overcome. Learn how with the July issue of BookThink's new Gold Edition - "How to Buy and Sell Foreign Books."

I thought perhaps this might be a good time ... to discuss something ... fundamental - the present health of your businesses and what can be done to improve them. If you believe that your business is suffering largely for reasons beyond your control - the economy, too much competition, planet misalignment, etc. - you won't be interested in what I have to say. On the other hand, if you believe that you've played a large role in creating your situation, you might want to check in. There are things you can do immediately to turn things around.

Gold Edition #44

$5.00

Before I resume my discussion about buying and selling hypermodern mainstream fiction, I'm going to step back in time slightly to what is commonly regarded as modern fiction - and not just any modern fiction but the most collectible fiction out there. And forget about first editions. I'm going to put some easy money in your pockets. Over the years I've compiled a list of titles in my scouting book that are so intensely collected that we booksellers can make good money selling copies of them even if we never encounter anything in a first edition state.

Buying and Selling Hypermodern Signed First Editions

Gold Edition #45

$5.00

One of the most profitable niches for the hypermodern specialist is signed first editions. Of course, not all hypermodern SFEs have significant value - in fact, it's safe to say that most don't, either because the author signed so many copies that supply outpaces demand or the author book isn't especially collectible. But is it practical for a bookseller to specialize in SFEs? Gold Edition #45 answers this questions - and much more.

A Bookseller's Guide to Betty Crocker

Gold Edition #48

$5.00

Years ago I recall thinking that it might be possible to make a good part-time income selling nothing but Betty Crocker cookbooks. I'm sure this isn't possible now, but even today, booksellers who don't know this niche cold are leaving thousands of dollars on the table year-in and year-out.
