A guide to buying and selling used SF books
Within these pages, you'll learn all of the basics behind bookselling for the part-time, convention bookseller from stock selection and setup to pricing and shipping. With Bud's many years of experience behind the dealer's table, he is in a unique position to guide the newbie bookseller with his insights into the business, and to offer his personal thoughts as a life-long bibliophile.
Do booksellers get all the babes? Maybe. You'll at least meet some very interesting folk in your journeys. And if you're looking for a fun way to help ease the burden of convention costs, this is certainly one way to do it.
"Written specifically for the beginner or hobbyist seller. The Joy of Booking discusses all of the important points of getting started and does so in a way that not only inspires you to do it but also shows you how to do it right. More relevant than ever in this increasingly digital world. Webster's writing will remind even the most jaded dealer why we started selling: for the love of the book."
