From the Editor

What book genre are you most likely to see in a thrift shop? Romance, of course, and MMPB format romances, at first glance, seem to offer little or no potential for bookselling profit. Some of you know differently, however, and so does BookThink's Teresa Kopec, who completes her two-part series on buying and selling romance with suggestions of specific authors, titles and series to look for - and please note that vampires are all the rage.

If you're squeamish, you might want to steel yourself some before taking a look at Book Repair Editor Gail Altman's article in today's issue. The topic is one that's near and dear to Floridian booksellers - uh, how shall I put this delicately? Evidence of cockroach visitation on books? And I'm not talking about nibbled board cloth. Anyway, Gail offers some unorthodox solutions to this largely regional phenomenon and - just what you wanted! - pictures too.

Issue #25 of the Gold Edition was delivered Wednesday evening, March 8 - Part III of a multi-part series on full-time bookselling. The topic this month is how to start and maintain a scouting book. As with all Gold Edition series in progress, new subscriptions will begin with Part I. We catch you up instantly. Subscribe here.
