A guy rang me yesterday, said he had some sci-fi books he wanted to bring in to swap for store credit. Okay, says I, bring them in. So he turned up late in the day - with a trailer load! Close to 2000 books. Pretty much all sci-fi, but lots of old authors that don't sell anymore (Rhodan, Simak, etc). But quite a few who do sell (Heinlein, Norton, Clarke, etc.).
It took an hour and a half to transfer them all from his trailer to the back room because, of course, he wanted his boxes back then and there. So now I have a couple of thousand books stacked in very wobbly piles waiting for me.
Anyone want to come and help me sort, process, price and shelve? I'll buy you lunch.
