Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Library Journal:

Browne is a media content analyst, book reviewer, and writer who has turned his passion for secondhand books into this entertaining guide to the world of used bookstores. The book begins autobiographically, as Browne explains how his love for secondhand books grew and was guided by various individuals he has encountered. In the book's second part, he looks at genres of books and particular titles that mark out a great store. Finally, Browne considers what to do with all the books one has acquired-read, give, store, or sell. The chapters are interspersed with "Bookmarks," brief reviews of particular books that have stood out to Browne and have been influential in his own book-shopping journey. VERDICT This is an easy read that would make a good companion for those who share the author's predilection for hunting down secondhand printed treasures.-Rebecca Bollen Manalac, Sydney, Australia (c) Copyright 2010.
