About Bookfever.com, IOBA

This is our 23rd year in business. We started selling books in the CompuServe Book Collecting forum in 1993, quite a while before there was any commercial Internet. In 1998 we relocated our main business from Sacramento to the Sierra foothills of Amador County, about 35 miles east of downtown Sacramento and opened a store (called Books Upstairs) at the Antiques Upstairs Mall, 5 Main Street, Jackson, CA. (open every day from 10-5) The emphasis there is on Western Americana, children's books, mysteries, science fiction, and inexpensive reading copies of classics and vintage juvenile series. Please let us know if there are any other books you are looking for; we enjoy helping collectors complete their collection and we can often suggest books for reading! .
