“Editors can be stupid at times. They just ignore that author’s intention. I always try to read unabridged editions, so much is lost with cut versions of classic literature, even movies don’t make sense when they are edited....
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.

“Editors can be stupid at times. They just
ignore that author’s intention. I always try to read
unabridged editions, so much is lost with cut versions of classic
literature, even movies don’t make sense when they are
edited too much. I love the longueurs of a book even if they seem
pointless because you can get a peek into the author’s mind,
a glimpse of their creative soul. I mean, how would people like it
if editors came along and said to an artist, ‘Whoops, you
left just a tad too much space around that lily pad there, lets
crop that a bit, shall we?’. Monet would be ripping his hair out.”
