Interview with Joanna Sunderman of A1A Books

When did you get started in bookselling?
About 15 years ago on Amazon
What drew you to bookselling?
I like books and needed college textbooks, and I discovered that I could resell them online and get my money back when I was done with them. Then I started selling personal books I had read, then i started going to thrift stores, and it took off from there.
Did you have any mentors in becoming a bookseller?
No, I was the first person in my former area (Sarasota FL) to sell online.
What are your specialties as a dealer?
What's the most amazing book you've ever sold?
An art book on Valore for almost $400
What is your favorite part of being a bookseller?
Getting books to those who need them
Do you have an open storefront or have you in the past?
Not physical, just on other venues (Amazon, half, alibris, valore, all in excellent standing)
If so, do/did you have any bookstore pets?
I do not have a physcial bookstore, i sell online but yes we have pets at home
What is the funniest / strangest / scariest thing that ever happened in your store?
I do not have a physical bookstore, i sell online only
What is your favorite bookshop (other than your own)?
Chamblins Bookmine in Jacksonville FL
What do you personally like to read? Collect?
reading: cookbooks and gardening books I collect anything old, before 1923 that is in the public domain
What's your favorite book you personally own? Would you sell it, if the price were right?
An vintage copy of Gone With the Wind. An ex library copy from the 60s. My dad who is gone, gave it to me so i would not sell it.
What one book would you buy if price were no object?
An original signed copy of The Lady and the Tigers by Olga Greenlaw
If you were stranded on a desert island and could bring three books, what would they be?
One on edible plants One on the constellations One on survival skills, preferably a military one cannot name titles, but have sold different books on these topics, and one of each of those topics for surivial purposes would be the most prudent choices
