Boston Antiquarian Book Fair

Is anyone going to the Boston Antiquarian Book Fair at Boston’s Hynes Convention Center tomorrow (Sunday)? Abby and I are going. If you see the two of us strolling around—with black (me) and canary (Abby) LibraryThing t-shirts—say hi.

We’re obviously not allowed to sell anything on a regular ticket, but we’ll bring a dozen of those CueCat barcode scanners to give out to Thingamabrarians, first-come, first-served.

While LibraryThing has done very well among book-nuts generally, it hasn’t necessarily caught on as strong in the high-end antiquarian market. I can think of one of two things we could do, like trying to estimate prices, and allowing members to upload multiple photos. Any ideas?

Here are some of the covers I’ve received recently:
