Well, I'm a long time bookseller for a major independent bookstore group. I just love books and love being around them, and took the job while I was working on my master's degree...and I'm still working there (a different store in the same group) looong after my masters was completed. As far as getting into used bookselling, I know a number of people with varying levels of experience and success in that field, and the first thing you need is a large stock of books. Auctions, yard sales, wherever you can get em, but get as many books as you can until you have the makings of a reasonable stock. It can grow later from trade ins, buy ins, etc.

If you're interested in taking the plunge, you should look up cowpunk on LT. He's an old friend from the last bookstore I worked at and he's had experience selling used and collectible books and has toyed with the idea of opening his own store.

Good luck!
Happy to meet you! Looks like we do have a lot of similar books. I'm always glad to meet new readers! Feel free to pop in and drop me a line if you read something particularly good!

I notice that you have an interest in Christianity & Christian Living. I wonder if you might be interested in my Bible Reading Notes, covering the whole of Scripture, posted in November 2006 at
Happy New Year.
