Stan Zielinski returns this week with his Part II of "The Top 100 Collectible Children's Books" - a multi-part series that attempts not only to name the top 100 but also to offer a rationale for choosing them. The former requires at least some courage, the latter rather more, I'd say, but even the attempt produces an intriguing result, agree with it or not, if for no other reason than it demands a discussion of what makes some books intensely collectible and others less so. Today, Stan offers the remaining 75 titles, along with some commentary. Stay tuned for Parts III and IV in the coming weeks.

If you rely on local sources for most of your inventory, it's a good bet that you've felt the sting more than once of hearing about a sale you should have been at but weren't. Though it's true that you can't be everywhere, there are tactics you can use that will increase your chances of both choosing the right sales and gaining advantages which have the effect of increasing your book buying footprint in your area. Some of these tactics are discussed in the recently published chapter of BookThink's Guide to Online Bookselling. If you aren't yet a subscriber but are new or relatively so to bookselling, both this and the previous chapter were written expressly for you and can help you close the gap on your competition.
