speaking of flogging

Another example of a twist on better bookselling through blogging are feeds . . . or would that be ‘is’ feeds since ‘twist’ is singular?

Oak Knoll – purveyors of all books biblio – also includes feeds on its site – so that interested parties can be automagically notified when new items are posted. A web feed, if you remember class is a data format used for providing users frequently updated content. Like RSS or Atom formats.

For example this feed – http://www.oakknoll.com/rssfeed_book%20selling.xml
yielded this item in my mailbox today:

PARNASSUS ON WHEELS
Morley, Christopher

– Garden City : Doubleday, Page & Co. 1917
– small 8vo.
– cloth-backed boards.
– (viii), 190, (2) pages.
– ISBN none / Order Nr. 22067
– Price: $ 175.00

First edition, first issue with a transposed em quad and capital letter Y on page 4, second paragraph, line 3 and missing “l” from “goldenrod” on page 169, line 11. (Lee No.5). Probably the most famous bookselling novel to be written. Well preserved copy.

One of the most reprinted books about our trade and practically a prerequisite read. I had never actually seen the first edition, until now.

So think about adding feeds – to keeping FEEDING your customers. get it? ha ha ha I am so very witty.
