Hello, Certainly not a brag, but I have about 500 books adorning my walls, and some are quite old. Would someone suggest a "beginners" book on book collecting or a good website to me please? I do fancy Jack Higgins, Robert Ludlum, and if pressed for the whole truth, Ian Flemming. Ken Follet and...

A Littel Boasting by Willow Arune
Well, with three sales now under by belt, as it were, I have topped $10,000. The last - 22 books for $3000. It seems I have discovered a market, one that needs little tending. The total advertising for the three sales was six e-mails outbound. I think I'll keep this going for time. My...

Making books your own by Bill Palmer
It occurs to me that some of the disagreement which arises in this newsgroup crops up because a number of posters write from the standpoint of the dealer and/or investor, rather than from the collector with a love of books. While in many cases the resulting viewpoints do not need to conflict at...

How Many Men Have Become Books? by William M. Klimon
Or, more specifically, how many authors have become eponyms for their books--or perhaps a genre of books? These come immediately to my mind: Bartlett's (Quotations) Webster's (Dictionary) Fowler's (Modern English Usage) Gray's (Anatomy) Black's (Law Dictionary)

Building a library... by [email protected]
Well, it's a done deal - I've closed on my first house, tiny though it may be, complete with a nice wood-paneled study with built-in barrister bookshelves. My law books will of course occupy some of these, but all work and no play -- you know the rest. I was raised in a(n upper?) middle-class...
