Quote -E.A. Bucchianeri, Brushstrokes of a Gadfly

Posted May 30, 2013

For the most part I will be offering religious books, but I also am selling quality used books in many other categories. As I grow my inventory, I will aquire quality used books of all genres, but will try & concentrate on religious genre. Please let me know how I can best service your love for books. Gary Frede

Hi, my name is Gary Frede. I have been a reader all my life. I found this quote on a t-shirt from Wireless,(which I own & wear). "bib' li.o-hol' ism [<Gr biblion]. n. [BIBLIO + HOLISM] - books, of books: the habitual longing to purchase, read, store, admire, and consume books in excess". This describes me to a T. When I was discharged from the service in 1974, I found a job at a bookstore & eventually bought it. After 5 years & 3 months we sold it & moved to California to take a job at a bookstore out here. The bookstore I was working at has gone out of business, so I am putting my efforts into selling quality use books online.
