I had a good mail order book business going until my lists I sent out came back with wrong address scribbled on them.It was costing a buck for postage to send new lists to regular costomers.Sent a list to a good customer, in came back wth wrong address.Dug around and found customer phone number.Gave him a call and he told me he lived near the post office and knew the people that worked in the office.Sent a list with new address.Got an order back for 160 bucks woth of books.When I started selling books 50 cent would mail most books.Went to 2.50 probably higher now.Book rate got changed to Media mail.Priorty mail looked real good at first but went nuts in a short time.The computor did the most damage to the book business.Dealers I bought from closed up shop left and right.Classified ads went from 35 cents a word to 3.00.Ups aint any better.Used to get small parts delivered to my shop for 50 cents now cost 7 bucks.Im 80 years old now. Shop is closed, to hell with it.
