Cranky says, "If you're ready for a break, here are some other book related Web sites and some interesting things to do and see in my favorite city, Memphis, Tennessee."

 

Books and bookbinding links:

American Printing House for the Blindhttp://www.aph.org 
American Printing House for the Blind producer of braille, audio, and other publishing products for the sight-impaired. Founded 1858 in Louisville, Kentucky, APH employs a significant number of sight-impaired persons in their production plant and maintains the Louis Database of accessible materials and file repositories. 


American Booksellers Exchangehttp://www.abebooks.com/ 
American Book Exchange catalogs more than 40 million used books available from booksellers around the world. ABE adds a small commission to each sale, but the majority of out-of-print and hard-to-find books are still great bargains!

Powell's Bookshttp://www.powells.com/rareandcollectible.html 
Visit the Rare and Collectible "book room" on Powell's Web site. Powell's began as a used book dealer in 1970. The inventory grew so large, the store was moved to Portland, Oregon into a former automobile dealership. Powell's now sells both new and used books.


 


Alibris Booksellershttp://www.alibris.com/ 
alibris carries new, used, rare, and out-of-print books. It is one of the better sites for finding books for children and has many specialty topic areas.



Bookfinderhttp://www.bookfinder.com 
Bookfinder is a search engine indexing the inventories of 40,000 individual and commercial book sellers around the world. Started by two University of California students as a class project, Bookfinder now searches in multiple languages and recently celebrated its fifth anniversary. 

International Book Collectors Associationhttp://www.rarebooks.org 
The International Book Collectors Association site is a treasure chest of useful information for all book lovers, even though the information is aimed chiefly toward collectors. A step-by-step method for doing your own informal appraisal of an antique book is one of their most popular features.

About book collectinghttp://collectbooks.about.com 
The Mining Company's "about" pages contain lots of useful information for book collectors, an appraisal FAQ, and tips for buying and selling used books.
