    I was referred to the site by a buddy of mine and am excited to learn. I currently run a book business but am looking to learn how to sell unrelated products via facebook ads. Any pointers on where to start for complete beginners would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    edit: I posted without reading the pinned post at the top and am in the process of browsing around the pasted links for help with getting started!

    I broker academic text books between students, professors, and wholesalers :)

    Sounds pretty cool.

    Reminds me of this guy I knew about 15+ years ago- he bought old academic books, rebound them and then sold them on.
    He had what must have been early Internet and he was selling these books all over the world.
    He was super intelligent by all accounts, but strange as well - he had a box of socks and put on a new pair every day rather than washing the old pairs.

    Nothing to do with anything but you just reminded me of this.

    I've often considered acquiring a large supply of socks myself. As well as boxers and t-shirts. It would be nice to just wear them once and then toss them. But then I consider the waste factor and that there are those in need. But would they even want my used socks and under crackers? And if they did they would probably expect me to wash them before donating, no? Now I've created more work for myself. See the problem? Meh, maybe I'll just be a wasteful bastard and throw them out after all. Decisions decisions. Real talk.

    I was born and raised in Texas. Lived in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia and California for bits at a time while doing internships. Now my home base is Texas again but I travel all over the country for my book business. Howdy from across the pond new friend!

    Oh yes, I should have deduced that from the title of your post.
    Cool. Only ever been to one place in the US - Florida. Loved it over there; so different to the U.K.
