Plotting Your Future in Bookselling
How to Evaluate Alternate Venues

Alternate venues. Have you been looking for one? Aren't we all. In today's feature, "Plotting Your Future in Bookselling," we take a close look at this topic and suggest a powerful tool for evaluating potential venues in advance of taking the plunge. Consistent use of it should help you to avoid investing valuable time on venues that hold small or no promise of paying off for you.

Children's Book Awards
Remarks and Lists

Bookseller Catherine Huang makes her first appearance at BookThink. Catherine has put together some especially useful lists of award winning children's books - this may be the most complete set of these lists anywhere - and skillfully demonstrates how these can be used to mine our sought-after flashpoints.




Bible Mania

If you've never sold a Bible, you might be surprised at what they can do for your bottom line, not to mention how very, very often the higher-dollar examples surface at sales. Click to subscribe.
