Amazingly enough the big are enabling the small to make a good living, and the real and necessary cannibalism of this phase and the next will more likely involve the fast eating the slow. In contrast to Hermans' optimism, Mike Shatzkin, a publishing consultant, sees physical bookstores going the way of record shops and video rental stores. But when you pass it on you are enriched threefold.” There’s a gratification that one gets from a printed book that cannot be duplicated, and the sharing that books make possible is part of that gratification, part of that experience.

As a result, book sales in the “free” countries rose to fresh heights. Talk to others about what you're reading! They want to make eBay more appealing to buyers but seem to be forgetting that there can be no buyers without the sellers. The biggest surprise about working a bookstore? It is very satisfying building relationships between people and books. At the novel's opening, we find ourselves in a seedy hotel near Ground Zero. Here are some common signs: · Many BCEs include the printed words “Book Club Edition” at the bottom of the inside flap of the front cover. · A hardcover, dustjacketed book without a price at the top of the inside flap of the front cover is usually, but not always, a BCE. (The most common exceptions to this “rule” come from university, academic, and small independent presses, which sometimes avoid printing the price so permanently on their books, largely because a small print run may last for several years and necessarily undergo pricing changes due to market changes). · A book which has experienced the clipping or cutting of either the bottom of the inside flap of the front cover, or both the bottom and the top of the inside flap of the front cover, is very likely to be a BCE. · If you have other reasons to suspect a book is a BCE, such as inferior paper quality or smaller size, don’t be thrown off the scent by a clipped “price corner.” It may well be that what was clipped was not the price, but the absence of a price, in an effort to disguise a BCE. · However, printed words such as “A Selection of the Book-of-the-Month Club” or “A Main Selection of the Literary Guild” do not mean that a copy is a BCE; indeed, they probably mean the opposite.

Franklin wrote the text of the first part of this fund-raising promotional tract himself.
