Why Bookselling Isn't Working for You
Part I: Are You Hungry?

Today's BookThinker Update introduces a new series of articles that takes a fresh look at bookselling fundamentals, but please note that this series isn't addressed exclusively at beginners. Or even primarily. If you've been around the block once or twice and are struggling now, you might want to drop in, look at some of the changes in the marketplace that have taken place recently - and what you might do about them to get your business back in its best bookselling shape.

Book Burning for Booksellers
Shop Tested Procedures for

What??? Burn your books? Yes, BookThink recommends doing just that, the sooner the better, and today's BookThinker will show you why - and how.



ScoutPal Update
Part II

Time for a ScoutPal update. Last week, ScoutPal's Dave Anderson gave me the opportunity to test drive ScoutPalSE (ScoutPal Scanner Edition), a Nextel phone fitted with a barcode scanner. My experience with it can be expressed in one word: whoa. A detailed report here.

BookThink's Gold Edition
Banking Big Money on Banned Books

Banned, censored and otherwise suppressed books comprise one of the most profitable bookselling niches we know. In order to spot the winners, however, it's important to understand why they are winners - namely, to have a working knowledge of the underlying principles that make them so desirable to collectors. This issue of the Gold Edition explains this and more, providing you also with valuable lists of publishers, authors and titles to look for. Purchase this issue today or subscribe to BookThink's Gold Edition for monthly insider information for booksellers. Click here for details.

Also, taking up where he left off in last month’s column, Tim presents a complete chart of 7 different Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror awards and explains how it can be used for extracting valuable flashpoints.
