    I’m a 27 year law enforcement officer who will be ready to retire in 2 to 3 years. I have always been interested in books. I have always wanted to be involved in the bookselling buisness, but as you can imagine, I have no idea where i should begin. If anyone has any ideas, please let me know.

      I would contact the ABA (American Booksellers Association) and ask for a free information kit about opening a bookstore. Their website is http://www.bookweb.org. I hope this will at least get you started.

    Hey Bruce,

    I enjoy writing for the bookshop blog so much that I’ve re-posted this announcement on my site here:


    I just wanted to make sure that my readers knew The Book Shop Blog had my personal recommendation for any freelancers :). Hope that’s okay!

      That’s terrific Carrie – thanks for helping out. FYI, you noted the compensation. My view is that the compensation is two folded, the small payment and also the value of the links coming from our site to the Author’s personal site which would cost them at least $50 on any similar blog. So with that in mind I feel the compensation is pretty strong (if they have a website to market).
