|I can’t resist speed-reading even as I sort!!|
As I wrote, I had a second-hand books business from May 2006 until July 2007,and then, with decreasing intensity, concurrently with my publishing business for another couple of years.
It gave me the idea for publishing, and lots of hands-on experience with books and selling, and lots of subliminal knowledge of book publishing successes and failures, and so it wasn’t entirely wasted, so though I thought so at the time.
Well, we live in a rambling old property in the country, which includes a writing cottage, our main house and a horse barn, which became a book barn. We’ve decided to convert it to a games room for the girls and their friends, and so I’ve decided to take time to sort through the books, keep the ones I can’t quite bring myself to part with yet, and get rid of the rest.
And here are some pictures of a closed chapter of my life. You were tiring, my first-born business, but you taught me much!
