Interview with Misha Fredericks of mishakachina
- When did you get started in bookselling?
- I started selling books online in 2005. I was working at the Elting Memorial Library in New Paltz, NY at the time. They have a huge book sale each year and I knew that many of the books could be sold online for more money than they were getting at the book sale so I sold them online to help the library make more money to cover the cost of maintaining the library and to help offset the cost of the library expansion.
- What drew you to bookselling?
- I love books. I enjoy locating a rare or unusual book that others may be looking for.
- What are your specialties as a dealer?
- Currently I am listing engineering books
- What is your favorite part of being a bookseller?
- I mostly enjoy connecting people with books that may have been hard to find or getting them a really good deal on books they may need.
- Do you have an open storefront or have you in the past?
- I operate out of my home and only sell online.
- If so, do/did you have any bookstore pets?
- Yes, I have four cats that love to be around the books and especially enjoy being up high on the bookcases.
- What is your favorite bookshop (other than your own)?
- I enjoy browsing used bookstores and thrift shops
- What's your favorite book you personally own? Would you sell it, if the price were right?
- Healing with Whole Foods : Asian Traditions and Modern Nutrition by Paul Pitchford is my favorite book and bible Not for sale
