  1. Having a large collection of books (mostly mysteries) that are over-running my apartment, I would like to sell most of them……Do you purchase books from individuals such as myself or do you know of any of your list of Used bookstores who do??????? Thank you for your attention to this matter……………..

    Looking for a bookstore that would be interested in a collection of approx. 85 Flyfishing Books, some of them fairly rare and most older than 35-40 yrs. I am 86 yrs. old and want to make sure these have a good home.
