Upstairs would be the staff room – more of a study than a kitchenette, with a balcony. These investments are creating more efficiency at the store level, allowing us to deliver even more hours of store service and support when students and faculty expect it.” If you are looking for a model of how best to feed people some steaming fresh horseshit, you could not possibly do better than this.

Peter Hannaford signing his latest book on the night he died (9/5/2015). It is almost impossible to say who was the first publisher, the first printer, or the first bookseller. Maybe snapped some photos for the scavenger hunt? Even today, bloggers are divided about the poet’s view of the outside world. Like Mislaid, Nicotine is a frenetic hodgepodge of zinging dialog, cheeky dysfunction, and genuinely one-of-a-kind characters, all strung up in a surprisingly traditional and charming narrative web.

While prominent booksellers were sharing their experiences in the trenches — dealing with the fragility of their jobs and an unforgivable institutional silence, especially in Madrid where bookstores act as the real cultural agitators — a provocative insight came from Mexican guest Manuel Dávila. “In this industry people are basically complaining about everything. “This industry, as a matter of fact, is stronger than what we think.

You can share information, network with other booksellers, promote your bookstore, and locate bookselling resources. Seems most of the commenters here at BoingBoing have either never worked customer service in retail, or it’s been a long, long time. Then we repeated the process when we were done with the event, a mere 12 hours later. I remember the first time saying to myself, “You want a $145 for that?” To say I felt ripped off is an understatement, which is why this side hustle I’m about to share is all the more exciting.

We know what our towns and cities want to read, and we do this face to face and by reading books we know will engage our friends and neighbors-we don't use algorithms and formulas to tell someone what they should read. We buy and sell second-hand, antiquarian, rare and out of print books on most subjects but specialise in Yorkshire material and George Gissing. If you were to coax your the average non-poetry-reading American into looking at a Copper Canyon title and a Wave title side-by-side, they’d most likely choose the Copper Canyon book over the Wave book simply because it would look more like what they’d expect.

When children's book publisher Candlewick Press announced its first list, it offered booksellers an irresistible deal�50% discount, free freight, double co-op merchandising points, and a visit from a local professional storyteller. Kind of like Carrie meets The Dead Zone and combines it with elements of The Stand, with a teeny bit of The Shining thrown in. So, just as well that we have received support from Nordplus programme (thanks to UB international coordinator Veronica Trépagny) to implement the teaching of the course for one year and support travelling of teachers around the Nordic countries.

Surrounded by universities, Jimbocho is named after a 17th century samurai. She put out an update on her Facebook page: We have to get these books out of here or we're going to lose them all. Late in 1996, before the Newberys were announced, paperback rights to one of the contenders were sold to Hyperion after a lively auction for $250,000.
