Bookseller or Matchmaker!?!

I love what I do. I love searching out the best books, preparing them to sell, listing them online (with pics!!!), communicating with customers about the books, selling them, preparing them for shipping, and then dropping them off at the post office.

Sometimes, like this week, it feels like more than just bookselling. More like matchmaking. When I sell a book like the first printing of The Lessons of History by Will and Ariel Durant it feels more like bringing two important entities together- customer and book- than just making a sale.

Likewise, when Plutarch’s Lives goes out the door I am excited. It’s a book, it’s an idea, it’s a book containing an idea that has lived a history of its own, often a longer history than the customer buying the book. And then the book (and the idea) and the customer come together. And I facilitate that. It’s awesome.

A wonderful feeling. It’s why I do this. I love my books and I love my customers. Take care all!


Sell Us Your Books!!!

We want your books!!! We can come to you, make you an offer, box up your books, and take them away. No trying to find boxes, straining your back, none of the mess or the fuss often associated with slimming down your collection. We do ask that you have a significant number of books or books that might be of special interest to our customers. Most importantly, do not assume your books are not what we are looking for- give us a call instead.

We can generally make you an offer and write you a check on the spot.

We are also happy to partner with Estate Sale Managers, Professional Organizers, and others whose clients could benefit from having us remove some or ALL of their books without the hassle of packing them up and lugging them to a reseller or thrift store.
