  • Their story could have been taken from a chapter in a book off their shelves. It is a testimony to faith, prayer and everyday miracles. Tom and Joanne Peters had the grand reopening of Catholic Books and Gifts on March 19, 2010 at their new store in Fountain Valley. Less than two miles from their former location in Huntington Beach, the 20-year running, family-owned enterprise reached a milestone with the acquisition of this location more than double in size. One could make a case that this success came due to the resurgence of interest in the faith following the publication of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, or the deaths of Mother Teresa of Calcutta and Pope John Paul II, or the recent economic crisis bringing people to find solace in prayer, or the addition of their website which gives them an international presence. A comparison of timelines and calculated figures could easily prove these. The Peters', however, would rather attribute it all to a higher origin. (The full story of Catholic Books and Gifts)

    If the brick and mortar book store specializes in selling fiction books, then scan non-fiction books, DVDs, and CDs. Always look for the weak spot.

  • A decade after Barnes & Noble turned its once-troubled web site into one of the most successful e-bookstores in the world, investors are scratching their heads as the retail store once again considers losing full ownership of a book-related business with red-hot potential.

    For example, if the bookstore owner is a Christian bookseller, scan books in the military history, art, business, or self-help sections of the store.

    What kind of sociability arises when people read standing silently alongside one another? Is the comic book shop still a predominantly masculine space? How does the commingling of readers from different age groups affect the intelligibility of the space to the non-initiated? What appeal does the comic book shop have over online shops? What embodied practices are associated with the space? Do “New Release Wednesdays” still have the same ritual aura they did when we were teenagers? How does the space of the comic book store differ in other cultural contexts?

A couple of years before he died, Peter Howard of Serendipity Books, in Berkeley, was hired to appraise a small, general used bookstore in the greater Bay Area. Peter had appraised other bookstores and liked to use that platform to express his views of bookselling. The result is a rare look inside bookstore economics, with the conclusions and observations of one of the most knowledgeable, respected (yet simultaneously disliked), and successful booksellers in the trade.
