Every time I considered starting my own blog, I realized I didn’t have much to say. My life is fine enough, but extemely boring compared to the offerings of reality TV.

Lately I’ve picked up a new hobby — book collecting. I’ve read some books about book collecting, and spent the requisite hours prowling the aisles of cramped and musty used bookstores. And it occured to me — why not blog about it? So here it is: A blog about buying books, having books, and reading books. Pretty simple.

I am by no means an expert. In fact, I’m a complete “noob” in Internet lingo, so if you have any knowledge, share what you know! And if you don’t, we can learn together.

Things you can expect to see in current and coming posts:

  • The scoop on book collecting — what terms mean, tips for finding books at good prices, etc.
  • My favorite books and recommendations on what to read or collect
  • The idea of a “collection” — what does that mean and what should be in one?
  • News from the book world — reporting on books and the publishing industry has been rampant lately, as many forecast “the end of the [book] world as we know it”

I always appreciate feedback. Leave a comment or email me: thebookmarkblog@gmail.com

Have a great day!
