I Want My Own One...

i always have done. it would be great...all the best books and more that just one rediculous shelf of horror books! i am always so dissapointed with the bookshops here in the u.k.

they are very limited on some genres..such as horror.

there books are always in terrible condition...books have been pulled out of shelves and stuffed back into shelfves with complete pages bent back and even the spines damaged.....

when you take it to till to ask if they have more in stock or if they would give a discount, the staff look at you like your a martian....how dare you ask for a book in reasonable condition.

i would have the best book shop.....big comfy sofas to sit in and try before you buy! coffee's and cakes and nice staff!

i dont think i would make much money though!

unless u sold secondhand. my bookstore which i love makes quite a bit of money. the interior of the store is kinda crappy but its the owner (who knows of any book i ask about) makes the store the success it is. Him and his wife are the best bookstore owners. I think customer service is key for any store really.
They occasionally read excerpts or give a review and offer recommendations. If they don't have it in store they will source it for you and give you an on the spot price not a geusstimation then hit you with added extras once it comes in.

I would shop there lol

Sounds like an awesome idea, I hate when books get tatered and runined.

Those type of bookstores make a fortune over here!
