Firstly, thank you to Biblio for awarding me the 2013 Don Dario Scholarship to attend the 2013 CABS seminar. I traveled a long way (from New Zealand), and the assistance from Biblio was a great help.

I would definitely recommend CABS (Colorado Antiquarian Book Seminar) for anyone with a serious interest in book selling. In today’s world, the traditional bookselling model of opening up a brick-and-mortar bookshop, and then sitting back and waiting for customers to walk through the door, is increasingly becoming less viable.
