Fortunately the campaign turned out to be unnecessary: paper books more than managed to hold their own against the rise of the ebook. In fact sales of new books are on the rise, ebooks are slightly declining and the charm of beautiful old books remains as strong as ever. Hurrah! I am now a full time professional book dealer. I am a member of the PBFA, the largest professional booksellers organisation in the country. I sell mainly at book fairs across the country, from the South Coast to York. You can find my fairs diary here.
