secondhandbooks.org is a new site created by UK web developer Tom Chadwin to allow non-book dealers to buy and sell second-hand and antiquarian books online.
“I have always loved second-hand books,” says Tom Chadwin, “and long ago, I registered the domain secondhandbooks.org. Life got in the way of the project until December 2002 when I was able to construct the site.”
The site charges no commission or advertising fee, and hence is ideal for the hobbyist. “Since the launch of secondhandbooks.org,” says Tom, “I have tentatively asked for feedback and advice from trade expert mailing lists, and have subsequently developed some tools useful to the professional dealer.
“Since launch, secondhandbooks has grown to hold over 45,000 volumes, but this represents the tip of the iceberg. I want to use my skills as a web professional to provide a first-class service to a pastime I have enjoyed for many years.”
Tom has been involved in design for over ten years, and in online development for five. He has carried out work for clients including Miramax, Lego, Newcastle Airport, and Typhoo Tea. The site can be found at http://www.secondhandbooks.org, and Tom can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
