I began collecting books I loved 12 years ago in a purely amateurish capacity, and quickly found that I had much to learn. Beyond knowing the books I was passionate about, I was almost clueless in regards to matters of edition, condition, and scarcity. After making a few mistakes early on, I was fortunate enough to make the acquaintance of several very experienced booksellers who invested their time and resources to mentor me. For the last decade or so I've scouted the country on both coasts, purchasing interesting material of literary significance in various genres. While I've been a "periodic" seller of books over the years, at the beginning of 2010 I decided to make a run at doing this full-time.
Over the years I've had the opportunity to manage several book shops, both large and small. The benefit of that experience is I'm better able to assist my customers in selecting items, whether for their own collections or when it comes to purchasing gifts. There are many booksellers who don't get around to reading much, but I am not among that lot. I'm confident that if you are looking to expand your collecting interests, broaden the scope of your existing collection, or to be introduced to new authors, I'd be capable and happy to help you in that regard.
