    Wed, 11 Dec 2019 09:00:00 Permalink
    Harriet is disgusted.  Her Dad and stepmom are going on vacation without her.  They are sending her to Mourne Mountain Summer Camp.  She knows they want some alone time but it just isn't fair.  She doesn't want to go to camp!Austin Macauley Publishers Ltd allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published and you can get a copy now.The first thing she does is say something embarrassing at the meet and greet gathering.  She knows she smells, she doesn't like cleaning up.  It doesn't take long until she's by herself most of the time.  Read More

    Semiotics

    Mon, 09 Dec 2019 09:08:53 Permalink
    Every year about this time, for the past couple of decades,  promoter Marvin Getman produces an event he calls the “Holiday Antiques, Vintage, and Decorative Arts Show, Including Book and Paper Row.” It takes place in the venerable Shriner’s Auditorium in Wilmington, Mass, just a few miles west of Boston – somewhere north of a swap meet, but way south of the Winter Antiques Show. The 90-odd “antiques and design” dealers (mostly mom & pops) are supplemented by a dozen or so raggedy book and paper dealers, and the resulting show is always funky, junky, and fun.

She readily agreed to come along on a joint book hunting and genealogical research expedition to Burlington, Vermont this past weekend. Old Saratoga Books was signed up as an exhibitor at the Vermont Antiquarian Booksellers Association Spring Fair on Saturday, April 8th at the Burlington Hilton and Barb was interested in doing some family history research at the University of Vermont Library's Special Collections, so we made it an extended weekend.We started our journey Read More

    Four Book Fairs in Five Weeks - 14 March 2017

    Tue, 14 Mar 2017 08:31:33 Permalink
    It’s been a busy month, but we’ve now returned from New York, and things should be back to normal by the end of the week.This year we decided to do both California book fairs and follow those up with the two New York satellite-shadow shows.  Gail and I couldn’t be more pleased with the results; we sold well into the low five figures at each of the first three book fairs and did very well in the fourth. For the first time in a long time, customers--to include average collectors--weren’t timid when it came to buying.  What did they buy?  Well, Read More
