Back to work after a short summer vacation, as is our Selling on Amazon columnist Kristian Strom. Kristian discusses an approach to bookselling that some of you may never have considered and along the way interviews a bookseller with a very different approach indeed - Thatcher Wine of Juniper Books.

Having trouble finding quality inventory? You don't have to leave home to find it - and still, after all these years, eBay is an excellent inventory source. Time and time again books come up that are poorly described or photographed. Or underpriced. Or all of the above! If you've tried this before and been disappointed with your results, it's possible that two of BookThink's products could help. First, our How to Buy Inventory Online series (now in PDF format) shows you how, step by step, to build search strings and conduct effective searches for books you can profit from. There are also tutorials on creative searching strategies that you might never have thought of. At $14.99, it's still a bargain. Purchase it here. Second, BookHunt - an application designed specifically for book scouting on eBay. Once configured, it runs 24/7 in the background and alerts you when your search strings locate potential inventory. Purchase it for $19.99 here, or buy it bundled with the How to Buy Inventory Online series for $29.99 here. BookHunt comes with a 30-day money back guarantee, and lifetime upgrades are free.

With the busy bookselling season looming ahead, this might be a good time to review some of BookThink's products - which are expressly written to help you sell books! Click here here for more information.
