Story
Tagline
Neurotically attached to the idea of making a living selling interesting OLD books, maps, ephemera and anything nostalgic.
Introduction
I am a bookseller and have been in the business since 1989. USED books that is, the older the better... This means I actually apprenticed in a brick & mortar store, learning it all!

I love books, coffee, atomic history, Idaho, cats, antiques and old stuff in general.

I'm an elementary school Library volunteer - I think everyone should do this as children need inspiration in learning to love books. Best way to make my day? When a little kid asks me why I like to work in the Library for free...

My idea of a good time would for someone to lock me in the Library of Congress or Smithsonian for a weekend. Alone.
Bragging rights
I survived thyroid cancer. Boosh!
