So you want to own a bookstore

I think owning a book store would be one of the coolest jobs – especially a used book store.  I know it doesn’t pay very well but being around a lot of books, especially well read, well loved books just really appeals to me.   This woman’s story about how she started an online bookstore and is now expanding to a real world store was very inspiring.  She buys books wholesale and sells them through her eBay store.  Her inventory has expanded so much she needs warehouse space and she discovered an opportunity that allows her to rent retail space for the same amount of money, so she is opening a store!
