Interview with Micky And Linda West of mclinhavenbooks

When did you get started in bookselling?
We started selling books in 2008
What drew you to bookselling?
I've always loved reading. After retirement i found it was very boring so my wife and i decided why not explore our love of books and it has been an exciting adventure ever since. We have finally grown our inventory to include such rare books as first published book of Walt Whitman's book "Leaves of Grass" 1860 and the first edition of A NARRATIVE OF THE LIFE OF DAVID CROCKETT 1834 vary rare. The hunt and finding lost items is what drew us to this exciting business.
Did you have any mentors in becoming a bookseller?
We had some fellow bookseller advice as we began to gain more experience. However we started at the bottom and came up through the school of hard knocks. It really is the only way to build a business.
What are your specialties as a dealer?
Our specialties are rare and collectible books. We have sold books to museums, libraries and other institutions. Our inventory includes young adults, children's books, Fantasy, Science Fiction, Signed Books and many more.
What's the most amazing book you've ever sold?
I haven't sold it yet.
What is your favorite part of being a bookseller?
The Hunt for sure. Trying to locate a rare first edition with first printings and perhaps signed.
Do you have an open storefront or have you in the past?
No
What do you personally like to read? Collect?
All genres. However I lean to books of the twentieth century fiction, fantasy, sci-fi my wife is more inclined to read non-fiction exploration, history.
What's your favorite book you personally own? Would you sell it, if the price were right?
Davy Crockett. Yes i would sell if the price were right
What one book would you buy if price were no object?
I really don't have an honest answer to that. There are so many great books it would be hard to settle on one book.
If you were stranded on a desert island and could bring three books, what would they be?
Bible, How to survive on a deserted Island and How to grow Food
