Gypsy Bookselling
Part I: The Plan

Regarding the possible relocation I mentioned some weeks ago, it's definitely still a possibility, and I've been doing some serious thinking lately about how it might impact my bookselling business and what, if anything, I should be doing to get ready for it. At this point, it seems as though some species of "gypsy bookselling" may be in my future. Today's article looks at some of the obstacles that will need to be overcome to make this happen.

Top 10 on Ebay
October 2005

Contributing Editor Pamela Palmer returns today with her fourth BookThink's "Top 10 on eBay." Some familiar things appear - Harry Potter, Philip Pullman, P.G. Wodehouse, Alcoholics Anonymous, etc. - along with some unfamiliar, and there are fully 12 titles that were published after 1950. What does this tell you? Also, fiction seems to be attracting the biggest spenders, and most of the money is still going into UK bookseller's pockets.

50/50 Issue #7 - Hot Spots in Magazines
Now Available

Issue #7 of 50/50 is now available for purchase. The focus is on magazines, and we've imposed some pretty demanding criteria: one, individual issues only (no groupings or lots); two, post-1960 publication dates only; three, relatively common to very common publications; and four, typical values of $50 and up online. Think it can't be done? Well, there are 100s and 100s of them listed in my scouting notebook, and you're getting fully 75 of them in one issue - a bonus of 50 over the usual installment.
