    So Proud of My Colleagues!

    Sun, 04 Nov 2018 07:19:04 Permalink
    ABE is a major Internet bookselling site. In 2008 it was purchased by Amazon. I quit them years ago because they weren’t a fit for my quirky business, but many of the people in the trade depend on them as a reliable source of income – even as they ratchet up the percentage they gobble up on each transaction. In the past week a sort of uprising has taken place, and it makes me proud to be a member of this trade.Continue reading So Proud of My Colleagues! at Ten Pound Island Book Company. Read More

    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
