Good Luck

When we are trying to sell more books and were always trying to sell more books the first thing we do is a letterbox drop, over the last six months we have had flyers distributed from Wyee to Warners Bay from Cessnock to Charlestown it is probably the cheapest yet most effective form of advertising you can do.
The local newspapers are great but for and simple way to get our used book shop noticed its flyers every time, When you are doing your marketing plan don’t forget this cheap effective alternative.

When you can make a flyer up on your computer get it printed and give it to a distribution service they can be out in peoples letterbox within a matter of days. The one I recommend and use is Zap Ads Avant Distribution Service,Increase your income its run by my son Les Owens he delivers them as arranged they work for us. Mention this blog and you will get a 10% of Premium delivery. Mail Me!

Yesterday we wanted to look at some new books so for a change we went to Westfield Tuggerah for me that was the first time for about three years. It had had nothing to do seeing that I had nearly finished Stieg Larsson’s

the man who left to soon

Stieg Larsson

first book of the Millennium Trilogy The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo I simply have to read the rest of his book I enjoyed from start to finish in one hit all others were on hold to it was finished, rare for me. I also brought a few copies of Truman Capote’s book In Cold Blood, we even lucked in on some Nora Roberts Romance Fiction, Peter Watt Australian Fiction, Bill Tuckey true crime books on our customers want list, and we are always looking for books for people its part of the job, if your looking for a book then send me an Contact Jim or Phone 0249 735 925

Mixture of fiction

We left late and in the end had lunch at McDonalds YUK enough said. What was strange for us is we never even went into a used book shop this must be a first time I think I have ever gone to Wyong or anywhere for that matter and not even looked in a charity shop or bookshop.

If your looking used bookshop around our area take a look at my Google maps to see where the other bookshops are around our area.

Where did you get your name? after a past family member, or are you more adventurous and name your children after characters in books, or famous people maybe a first love then again it could have been some other reason.

Just in the last couple of weeks a very close family friend called Laura had just given birth to healthy little girl, I can remember her telling me that when she was reading To Kill a Mocking Bird by Harper Lee and that her favorite character was Jean Louise (Scout) & if she was lucky enough to have a daughter that was the name she would chose.

Now as things go and they usually do approximately ten days ago after much labor a beautiful little girl called Scout arrived to the joy of family and friends alike her mum had to do the all the work anyway. Her close friends were all around to support.

I have been busy working in the used book shop, but today I was lucky enough to call in and see Laura & Scout, and what a beautiful baby girl she is, I only hope she enjoys reading as much as her mum, which I’m sure she will. I know she will get lots of good books delivered at just the right moment. Go Laura & Scout.

A good book has no ending. ~R.D. Cumming

With all the rain today, she who must be obeyed said “Lets go to Toronto you need your medicine, yes right okay I have two minutes to get in the car.

Grand opening

Off we go down the wet road all the way to Toronto, first stop lets have a quick look at the Salvation Army shop, what a surprise for us when we went the new book section was finished but had a ribbon across the entrance. Can we go in? No it will be opening in about half an hour, great we can wait for that. Anne is having fun looking at the bargains around the shop.
Me I just went out the front and started to play with my trusty little digital camera while I’m waiting when I noticed a crowd at the back of the shop.
Well I better go and have a look, of course I’m off to have a look, what do you know? Here is the unveiling of the new used books section, out with the camera and snap a few shots of the local Minister cutting the ribbon.
Then we are all allowed to go in and have a look, all the workers and me. I’m like a kid in a candy shop, looking at the good used books.  I chose a few biographies a nice local history book.
If you know Anne she’s talking to everyone, meeting friends from around the western side of Lake Macquarie I’m sure she knows everyone from Warners Bay to Morisset. Soon Anne is in the book room hunting for those extra good used books that everyone is looking for as usual Anne selected some great fictionnon-fiction books, while I’m looking for my glasses now where did I put them?
Then in walks Faye a friend from our old  bookshop. After we picked our books, Anne had her bargains for everyones birthday for the next twelve months, we are off  to see the grandkids which turned out to be a quick trip,  but first a bowl of pumkin soup cup of tea, then its bye bye Kate & co.
We can go back to work now seeing we left Leslie in the shop all on his lonesome and he had to leave and go and deliver some flyers to the local businesses while we had a little break oh happy Friday wish I could go camping.
Cheers
Jim Owens
