On June 21, 2016 I will publish a list of 60 items related to book selling in California.  While there are a few San Francisco items, most are related to Los Angeles, and of those, the largest number were produced by Jake Zeitlin or are related to his various book stores.  Take a look here:

The Early Bird gets the Worm!  The best way to buy books from me is to sign up for the Mail Chimp mailing list, below.  When I publish a new list, it gets sent to your email inbox.  Those in the know read the list right away, because if they don't get an order in quickly, newly offered items will be gone!  Sign up today!
