Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Every week dozens of booksellers seek and share advice and information about bookselling and the book industry on BookWeb's Idea Exchange. Here, BTW presents a look at some of this week's topics -- with the hope that more booksellers will join in.

Among the topics that booksellers are discussing in the Bookseller-to-Bookseller Forum this week are:

  • How to handle customer requests for titles that the store does not currently carry or had not planned on ordering in the near future;
  • A continuing discussion regarding media mail;
  • A back-and-forth on Moleskine notebooks;
  • Planning Potter parties;
  • Working with local schools; and
  • A query regarding e-mail service for Macintosh.

In the Ask ABA forum there was a query on changing profile information. In Ask, there were inquiries regarding the Book Sense Gift Card Program and how to make the most out of a website.

The Idea Exchange Forums are open to ABA bookstore and provisional members only. (Booksellers who do not already have a BookWeb Account will need to create one.)
