*And oh yeah, 50% or more of our used book stock is always up for sale wholesale, including many thousands of books in back-stock... so if you have the bug to start or take over a book operation - well, this might be the place to start, but even 50% will not be cheap as we are talking good books. 50% or more Wholesale would not include our personal reference library, nor would it include our new book titles. We would use the income from such a sale to reprint hermetic philosophy hardcovers, patch a few holes, pay taxes - and feed some feral cats. (John)Back to Top
