    I am so fortunate: I get to work around books every day. After being in the book business since 2003 and an avid reader all my life, I still am never bored by books. I get excited every time I go out to scout for books, and especially when I am invited to visit and purchase from someone's cherished library. It's always an honor to me.

    When I was child, I used to walk into a library and be overwhelmed by how many books there were to read. How would I ever get to them all? ... And when I was a young adult and working as a journalist, I held on to secret dreams of some time in the future owning a bookstore and being surrounded by books all day.

    Now, during this second career, I am living out the bookstore dream. I began as an online book dealer in 2003, and in 2009 also began selling locally at The Printed Page Bookshop, 1416 South Broadway in Denver, where I was one of the charter dealers. Most of my business, however, continues to be conducted through online sales.

    The core of what I do is find new homes for used and collectible books, keep the idea of reading and collecting alive, generate conversation and excitement about books and reading, and keep printed books alive and in circulation.

    I'm a general book dealer, meaning I'm interested in most genres. But some specialties I lean toward include textbooks, educational books, general nonfiction, modern literature and select rare/collectible.

    Contact me if you have books to sell or donate. I approach all discussions of books with a spirit of appreciation.
