Update Announcements

Technology marches on, and to some extent bookselling with it. I began my bookselling life carrying a scouting book with me, and this almost seems quaint now, given the breathtaking capabilities of today's smartphones. The march of technology has steadily headed toward faster and smaller. Faster is always better, but is smaller? This could be a just-me thing, but frankly, I haven't taken advantage of my iPhone in the field as much as I thought I would. It's a size issue for me. The darn thing is small, after all, and consequently not as user friendly for deep research as a computer is. For the past month I've been experimenting with a somewhat bigger scouting tool - an iPad 2 - and today's feature article, Part I of a two-part series, is a preliminary report.

There's a lot more to bookselling than technology, of course. Knowledge is where the real power is, and BookThink offers many products that can give you the necessary know-how, including several packages that bundle large numbers of these products at significant savings to you. Our most popular package is also our most complete - a compilation of all previously published Gold Editions, QMR's and 50/50's. Click here for more information.
