    Adventures of a rare book dealer (and former small bookshop owner).


Written on August 3, 2009

Note that this blog has moved. The new URL is biblioblography.briancassidy.net. Please update your bookmarks.

Things have been quiet around here, and with good reason. I recently completed a cross-country move from our beloved Monterey to the Washington DC area. Yes, sadly I had to close my bookshop. But unlike other stories of bookstore closings, this was not a sad tale of diminishing readers and sales, the woes of Amazon, etc. In my case, it’s much more mundane: My wife got a new job, and so we needed to move.

Needless to say, the business has moved with me (and THAT is a blog post all by itself), but I will be working out of the house for the foreseeable future. I have much I want to write about my three years running my shop in Monterey and what I learned doing it. And more still about the book scene here in the nation’s capital.

But for now, this is just a note to say that I am still alive and that postings here will resume again shortly — and are likely to be more frequent now that I won’t have a shop to worry about. So stay tuned…And thanks for your patience.

    Welcome to the DC area! Hope we run into each other….you bought a few poetry titles from me long ago at the Roslyn bookfair. Best of luck in your new locale.
