Pieces and bits

As Steve noted in the comment on the previous post I got to looking around and changed the theme. It’s one I am using on the Mysterious Volumes (books we have for sale) site and liked it so much I decided to try it here as well.

Have added a link to our Cedar Springs Bazaar store at Specialist Auctions in the side bar. Slowly getting the books put in. Bob from Specialist Auctions posted in a comment to a previous post offering help and I do appreciate it but the only way I have the stuff I want to list is in a database file in ABE books format and not in an eBay store or in any other store, so I guess I’ll just continue to post the stuff in one at a time. Going to take a while but since I am gonna have to scan all the covers and adjust prices and such anyway I guess its the best way to do it. Just hate losing the time those 3000+ items took to get listed with ABE… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Other that working on stuff here on the computer and sorting more books haven’t done much today. Got to get out and about tomorrow. Till then… ๐Ÿ˜‰

Fairly short book and one I will read again in a few months after I have had time to digest it a bit more. It does make you think.
