    Selling Fine Press Books by Bald Man Word Count: 2022

    This is my text for a Squigoo 'lens' on my retirement business, which is the buying and selling of, mainly, fine press books. I was locked out of the Squigoo site for plagiarism, but there isn't a word on here that has been copied from elsewhere; I suspect it is about my use of book images, taken (with permission)from the printer's sites. However, in the meantime, I would welcome the usual IC scrutiny. There is a lot of 'telling' in this, I'm afraid.
