It’s part of a series on various dream-business topics, so that’s probably exactly what it is. There are useful resources mentioned, but it’s not specific and detailed enough, and you’ll need to find the free listservs for bookstore owners and lurk there to learn the nitty gritty. What’s the minimum square footage for a successful used bookstore, for instance? Instead, it includes too much commonsense info such as a “tip” telling you that you can find the copyright date of a book on the back of one of the title page.
Anybody interested in books would know that. And makeup as a suggested sideline product in a bookstore?! The best ones are either out of print, so hard to find and pricey, and the ones from the bookseller trade associations would be better to buy only after you know the realities of how costly it is and profitable it isn’t to start any kind of bookstore.
Go to one of the annual Book Expos and start your research there when you’re really serious. This book doesn’t mention that invaluable resource, other than vague recommendations to attend trade shows. My guess is that the author knows her stuff but was hamstrung by the publisher’s constrained format requirements. If you are looking for a comprehensive guide to assist you with opening up your own bookstore, then this is the book for you! Being a first time business owner, I had no idea of where to begin.
I struggle for over two months just trying to do the research to get started.

Then I came upon this book and within hours of reading it, I had a clear road map to start my own business. Now I’m not saying it made things easier. There is still a lot of hard work that goes into opening your own business. But it does make the initial starting point clearer. A decent overview of the independent bookstore business.
The book provides plenty of checklists, general rules of thumb, business plan information, issues and challenges. The book itself is relatively basic, and I wish it dove into more specifics on the details of the business itself. Many of the checklists and advice are good for ANY business – but I was hoping for more bookstore specific information and checklists. If you are thinking of getting in the business and have limited business and ho exerience, this might be a good reference.
I am very interested in starting my own business as an independent bookstore owner. This book was a great start for guie and has a lot of information that is very useful. I’m now ready to open my own bookstore. Well, not quite, but this book didn’t scare from the idea. This is a good primer for becoming a bookseller. It gives a lot of good resources to get started.
The FabJob Guide to starting a bookstore didn’t have any of the romance I would associate with starting a genuine second-hand bookshop.
I learned this much, and read on. Furthermore, you have to budget. Well, if you want to make a lot of dough, then this book is for you. It has been my dream to open up a bookstore for years. So, I decided to research it. I purchased this book and my copy is marked up completely. It contains my bookstorf, sticky papers and more. It gave me valuable research that I feel would have taken me at least a year to obtain on my own. In addition, alot of her research is research you cannot get on-line.
The reason is because it includes interviews she conducted with bookstore owners asking about their experiences of being a store owner, resources, ideas and more. It is crystal clear to me that a great deal of time and research went into putting this book together. As an author myself, I personally know how time consuming research owber be in writing a book. So, Trust me, this book will be worth every penny! See all 11 reviews.
