BiblioDirect Update

Nothing much to report, really; no hype, no adjectives, just a consistent steady growth. At present we have two million books listed on BiblioDirect, from 350 dealers in the United States, Canada, England, Ireland, Israel, South Africa, New Zealand and Australia.

BiblioDirect President Lynn DeWeese-Parkinson represented us at the Seattle Book Fair and the Oregon Book Fair, and we have advertisements in the programs of other book fairs around the country. We advertise in various online and print media, and we are nearing completion of our second month of being searched by Bookfinder. The results are exhilarating.

Most importantly, we continue to make almost daily improvements to our site as we listen to our dealers and customers and their suggestions.
