Among the many customers at Lake Macquarie Secondhand Books, one is a keen collector of almost anything
Many of these titles cannot be purchased in Australia from any booksellers and rarely appear in used bookshops in Australia.
These are just a few of those titles
The King the Mice & the Cheese
The Kings Wish
King Midas & the Golden Touch
Here are just a few of the books that keep my customer smiling. What more can you ask?
At nearly half the price in Australia if they’re even imported.
A&R’s & Borders will bring them in to Australia for around $29 to $35 but Book Depository will post these to you free that’s right FREE. With prices starting from $8.47 to $27 and the majority are below ten dollars for hardcover books excellent value in any language.
At last cheaper books
When those Australian publishers & bookshops have had a virtually closed market for years, they’ve grown fat and lazy and now the internet & the business world has found an opportunity wide open. As we, all know you have to get your sales where you can & hang the dinosaurs.
Now also Australian customers long starved of cheap books have found alternative venues to shop online & get the book delivered to their door at greatly reduced prices.
Balancing Competition Challenge
There are booksellers in Australia that competing with the mega listers from the UK & USA, but it’s a struggle to keep going but there will always be loyal customers, but all of us dealers will have to provide extra’s to stay in business.
Challenges are always fun & at the same time the ones that do not make it will find other ways to make a living. Eventually many of the small & medium booksellers will decide pull up stakes and find easier pickings and the larger ones will either, merge or be swallowed by the larger dealers narrowing the field and improving the experience for the customer, and so the cycle goes.
After the game the King and pawn go into the same box.
