A Good Day For Writing
1/22/2004 6:35:29 PM
Just some musings to kick things off

A cold, windy day with occasional snow flurries. A good day to be inside and writing, and it was. I completed two chapters of "Something In Common," the mystery serial I'm doing for

Afterward, I spent some time cataloging my first editions and was surprised how my collection is growing. I've just completed reading "Book Finds: How to Find, Buy and Sell Used and Rare Books" by Ian Ellis, a book required in the course I'm presently taking at Barnes & Noble University.

I've often considered the idea of opening a used book shop. Lord knows, I have enough books! But, while intriguing in some ways, I don't think I would want to be tied down with an actual store. Maybe when I'm rich and famous I'll do it as a hobby like Larry McMurty.

Though I love reading and am not adverse to people, there are two major drawbacks to the thought of having such a store. First off, if I liked the book, I wouldn't want to part with it. Second, if people are trotting in all day long, how could you find the concentration needed to write.

Still, the Ellis book and the course are interesting insights into another aspect of the book world.
