THE HOLY INNOCENTS Gilbert Adair; 5. DISCO BLOODBATH James St. James; 6. THE WORLD CRISIS Winston Churchill; 7. IT CAN'T HAPPEN HERE Sinclair Lewis; 8. WHERE TROY ONCE STOOD Iman Wilkens; 9.

The Wall Street Journal, Getting Your Own Book Deal (December 21, 2004)

BookFinder.com, which is owned by closely held 13th Generation Media Inc., based in Berkeley, Calif., lists new and used books of the same title side by side. The price gap can be significant. Nelson DeMille's latest novel, 'Night Fall' is $26.95 at Powell's Books, Portland, Ore., but Fairview Books, an independent book retailer in Hudson, N.Y., recently sold a used copy 'like new' for $15.00.

The Wall Street Journal, Strangers in the Stacks: Google Removes One More Brick in the Library Wall. Good For Them (December 17, 2004)

Amazon is also one of the major players in the Internet's burgeoning used-book market, along with others such as Half.com and Alibris, and meta-sites such as BookFinder.com. Taken together, these outfits have matched buyers everywhere with used bookstores and individual sellers all over North America. Never before have books been more readily and cheaply available. I recently bought Ann Marlowe's memoir of addiction, 'How to Stop Time,' for $2.96 and Thomas Mallon's novel 'Bandbox' for $2.82. Both were hardcovers; the second was even signed by the author. The Internet used-book market has also practically eradicated the tragedy--for authors and readers alike--of a volume being 'out of print.' A market offering very inexpensive (and often older) books serves a function that libraries once did.

The Sunday Telegraph (London) (United Kingdom), Literary Life: Mark Sanderson Peers into the World of Books (December 12, 2004)

The most sought-after out-of-print title on BookFinder.com this year was The New Soldier, edited by John Kerry, a 1971 account of the war in Vietnam by Vietnam Veterans Against the War. The failed Democratic presidential candidate can at least take comfort from the fact that he has beaten a Republican, Lynne Cheney, wife of Vice President Dick Cheney, whose lesbian/feminist Western, Sisters, published in 1981, came second. Sex by Madonna, which topped the list last year, was third ? there is always a market for soft porn ? as Bernardo Bertolucci knows only too well: The Dreamers, his nudity-filled film version of Gilbert Adair's novel The Holy Innocents, created such an appetite for the story of incest that the book came fourth. Disco Bloodbath, James St James's tale of murder in Manhattan which inspired the film Party Monster, came fifth.

[RADIO] Morning Edition (NPR), List of Top Out-of-Print Books Offers Surprises (December 2, 2004)

If you are searching for an out-of-print book online, you might find yourself at BookFinder.com. The Web site provides access to the collections of some 60,000 booksellers. It's just released its annual Top 10 list of most-wanted out-of-print books. Anirvan Chatterjee is BookFinder.com's founder and CEO: 'When people think about out-of-print books, well, often what many people will think about these books that are really rare and boring and voluminous. And looking at the top 10 most-sought-after out-of-print books in America, you kind of get a better picture of what people really are looking for that aren't really being pushed by publishers.' Among the surprises are 'Where Troy Once Stood,' which makes the case that the Trojan War was actually fought in England. Books by Winston Churchill and Hunter S. Thompson also grace the list. 'The Principles of Knitting' is number nine and has a price tag of $275 and up. Then there's the perennial favorite, Madonna's book, 'Sex.' 'People are eternally fascinated by this book with pictures of Madonna and--just because you're looking at the world of out-of-print books doesn't mean that naked celebs don't win out there as well' Number two on the list is 'Sisters' a sizzling frontier romance set in the 19th century and written by the current second lady, Lynne Cheney. And, in this election year, the number-one most-sought-after out-of-print book was John Kerry's 1971 work on Vietnam called 'The New Soldier.'

[BOOK] The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History by Thomas E. Woods (December 1, 2004)

Martha Stewart Living, Ask the Editors (December 2004)

Collecting Books. 'How should I go about finding the value of an old book?' A book's worth, like that of any other collectible, is a matter of supply and demand. Rarity and popularity create the highest value, and the reverse is true -- but there's no set equation to follow...try an online service such as BookFinder.com, which is a network of booksellers that allows you to find the average price of a volume by typing it into a search engine.

MSNBC, In the Book World, the Rarest of the Rare: Would You Pay $25 Million for a Bible? (November 29, 2004)

Look for those Web specials: Though the most expensive rare books are the ones that capture the public imagination, book collecting is by no means an exclusive preserve of the very wealthy. In fact, while the upper end gets further and further out of reach, a much larger segment of the market has become more affordable, thanks to the Internet. Books that formerly were in the $50 to $2,000 price range have come down dramatically, Gloss says, because the Web makes locating them so much easier. 'What you were really paying dealers for,' he says, 'was the time and expertise needed to find them.' These days, by contrast, a site such as BookFinder.com, which compiles the catalogues of numerous sellers, gives collectors access to 60 million titles.

PW Daily, Most Wanted OOP Categories: Politics and Sex (November 22, 2004)

Books on politics and sex ranked highest among the most wanted out-of-print titles in the U.S. based on an analysis of out-of-print book searches on BookFinder.com during 2004. John Kerry's war memoir, Lynne Cheney's lesbian western and a book featuring Madonna's naked body were most in demand. 'I think this list serves as a reminder that there's a lot of books publishers aren't looking at and they're missing out on an opportunity to bring these titles back into print,' Anirvan Chatterjee, BookFinder.com's founder and CEO, told PW Daily.

The Boston Globe, Wonks Gone Wild! (November 21, 2004)

New American Library's plans to reissue 'Sisters' foundered earlier this year, when Cheney's power lawyer Robert Barnett objected, saying the book did not represent his client's 'best work.' Copies of the hard-to-find novel now command up to $500 on Internet auction sites, and it was just listed by BookFinder.com as the second most frequently requested out-of-print book in the country after 'The New Soldier' (1971), edited by John Kerry.

The Capital (Annapolis, MD), Book Beat: 3 Books That Make Economics Interesting (November 21, 2004)

Economics is boring, right? Not always. The subject actually can get interesting when economists decide to answer questions we have about today's complex world. The following books try to do just that...Does conquest pay? This is a question Americans may be asking themselves as U.S. troops occupy Iraq in the face of determined - and ultimately costly - opposition. Peter Liberman, a political science professor at Tulane University, wrote a book back in 1996 titled, appropriately enough, 'Does Conquest Pay? The Exploitation of Occupied Industrial Societies'. By looking at countries invaded by Germany and Japan during World War II, and Russia after the war, Mr. Liberman concludes that taking over another nation's economy does indeed produce a small profit for the occupier, at least in the short term. Although his study deals only with advanced, industrialized nations, the author's novel research methods might be applied to America's equally novel situation in Iraq...Some books mentioned here are still in print and can be obtained at libraries and bookstores. Others have gone out of print but may be found in used book shops or online at Web sites like BookFinder.com.

Dateline Alabama, Make Surfing the Web Useful (November 12, 2004)

The Toronto Star (Canada), Steamy Cheney Novel is Campaign Trail's Holy Grail: Rare Copies Priced at up to $25,000, V-P wife Turned Down A Reprint (October 30, 2004)

In 1981, a fledgling novelist caught the eye of a pulp book publisher in the U.S. with a story of forbidden love on the American frontier. Complete with adultery, incest and more than a little lesbian coupling, the book was racy, earnest and forgettable--perfect fodder for the ever-churning dime-store romance mill, where slapdash novels make brief appearances and vanish forever. But this book, called Sisters, has resurfaced to become the most sought-after out-of-print book in North America, according to BookFinder.com, which recently listed a copy at $3,000 (all figures U.S.). It's not a testament to the author's literary skill -- just ask her. The sudden appetite for Sisters is due entirely to that fledgling author's career arc, from naughty young writer to American conservative political icon. The writer in question is Lynne Cheney. Lynne Cheney, as in, wife of U.S. Vice-President Dick Cheney, whose administration believes gay marriage represents nothing less than the crumbling of Western civilization. Lynne Cheney, whose Republican Party is intimately woven with America's religious right. And lest we forget, Lynne Cheney, whose daughter, Mary, happens to be gay herself.

[BOOK] The Web Library : Building a World Class Personal Library with Free Web Resources by Nicholas Tomaiuolo & Barbara Quint (eds.) (October 28, 2004)

Books and Magazine Information: Anirvan Chatterjee began a network agent software class in the fall of 1996 at the University of California (Berkeley). His finished product was the forerunner of this metasearch engine for locating books in print or out-of-print, rare or signed. BookFinder.com costs nothing to use and your search invariably leads to numerous hits collected from the largest book dealer, such as Amazon to the smallest independents (it searches 40,000 booksellers). A couple of years ago I used several search engines to locate a copy of Mary D. Lake's Miss Geneva's Lantern. The copy I found cost $15. I recently used BookFinder.com to scour the Web and located a new copy at Half.com for$2.99--in seconds. I also wanted to obtain a first edition of To Kill A Mockingbird signed by Harper Lee. Ebay's auctions had a couple of offerings, but BookFinder.com retrieved 25 vendors.

The Chronicle of Higher Education, My Own Private Library (October 25, 2004)

So I troll eBay and BookFinder.com, looking to fill the gaps in my collections, occasionally finding an unrecognized gem or a damaged but readable copy of a rare book that would normally be out of my financial reach. Just as it did in graduate school, book collecting allows me to take a vacation from my scholarly writing without feelings of guilt. Book-collecting academics are often expert procrastinators. My bibliophilic obsessions are not limited to old books. I am particularly vulnerable to sets and series. I think that habit was started in my adolescence when I used money earned delivering newspapers and mowing lawns to buy books from Time-Life, such as the 'Old West' series bound in genuine hand-tooled Naugahyde. I also enjoyed Time-Life's series on artists, nature, and 'Mysteries of the Unknown.' I was taught a proper contempt for Time-Life in college, but those books were my introduction to the so-called 'life of the mind.' It was probably predictable that I would acquire, once my professional interests turned to American literature, the entire Library of America.

cricinfo, Another First for Murali, and Turner Keeps His Record (September 13, 2004)

I think the book you mean is actually called The Greatest Test of All. It was written by Jack Fingleton the Australian batsman of the 1930s who later became a noted journalist, and it's certainly about the first Tied Test at Brisbane in 1960-61. I found some copies on the book-search website www.bookfinder.com, after typing in 'The Greatest Test of All' on their site. In addition to that book, which focused on the first Test, there were a couple of books about the whole tour published at the time -- one by AG 'Johnnie' Moyes, an Australian journalist, and another by LD Roberts, who was a West Indian. Again you might find those on BookFinder.com, or at your friendly local cricket bookshop (there is a list of specialist cricket bookdealers in the back of Wisden Cricketers' Almanack each year). More recently there was a retrospective book about the tour, edited by Mike Coward, called Calypso Summer, a companion volume to the ABC-TV documentary of the same name.

The Seattle Times, Updates Books from Political Figures' Pasts Keep Out-of-Print Book Dealers Busy (September 12, 2004)

Nothing has stoked publishing more this year than politics -- political books from both the left and the right have dominated the best-seller lists. Here's an intriguing manifestation of that phenomenon. BookFinder.com, an online book-finding service, notes in its fall report that its two most sought-after out-of-print books thus far this year have been 'The New Soldier', edited in the 1970s by current Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry, and 'Sisters,' a debut novel from the early 1980s by Lynne Cheney, wife of Vice President Dick Cheney. 'The New Soldier,' first published in 1971, chronicles the efforts of the group Vietnam Veterans Against the War to end the war in Vietnam. Kerry worked on the book after returning from his second tour of duty in Vietnam, according to BookFinder.com. It's their No. 2 most sought-after out-of-print book. No. 1 is 'Sisters,' written by Cheney in 1981. The then-debut novelist wrote a 'bodice-ripper about 19th-century feminist pioneers in Wyoming, dealing in part with lesbian relationships,' according to a BookFinder.com press release. Both books are apparently being snapped up in order to find clues to the pasts of the respective candidates and their families. What's the moral of this story? Maybe be careful what you publish in your youth -- in an age of instant communication, books have remarkable staying power.

The Vancouver Sun, Sex vs. Politics; Kudos (September 11, 2004)

BookFinder.com, which maintains a top-10 list of out-of-print books, says the U.S. presidential campaign is having an impact. The most sought-after out-of-print novel is Sisters (1981), by Lynne Cheney, wife of Republican vice-presidential candidate Dick. The No. 2 out-of-print non-fiction book is The New Soldier, edited in 1971 by Democratic presidential hopeful John Kerry. Sex, by Madonna, remains the most sought-after out-of-print non-fiction book.

The Christian Science Monitor, Out-of-Print Bestsellers (September 7, 2004)

The Internet, which was supposed to herald the end of old-fashioned books, has instead saved the most vulnerable ones.

The two most sought-after used books now are 'The New Soldier' (Simon & Schuster), which John Kerry edited shortly after his second tour of duty in Vietnam ended in 1971, and 'Sisters' (New American Library), a 1981 novel by Lynne Cheney that deals with lesbian issues.

Publishers Weekly, Of Old Soldiers and Sisters (September 1, 2004)

The most in-demand political book these days? Not Unfit or one of the Bush-bashers but The New Solider, an old photo book edited by John Kerry that includes some of his Congressional anti-war testimony and whose title presages the politician's 1998 The New War. That is, at least judging by intensity of feeling (and absurdity of price). The book is currently at #2 on BookFinder.com, the closest thing the out-of-print-world has to a bestseller list. (Lest one thinks this a partisan issue, BookFinder.com reports that its top fiction title is Lynne Cheney's Sisters.) A spokesperson for S&S, which published Soldier in the early '70's, said it had no plans to re-issue the title or re-acquire the rights. Still, the online trading continues apace, with one copy on Amazon.com's zShops going for $2475. It's in 'great shape, extremely rare, holds the secret to the Vietnam debate,' says stu3234. Needless to say, we're holding on to those tapes of the Swift Boat ads.

The Salt Lake Tribune, Culture Vulture: Lynne Cheney's Out-of-Print, Lesbian Romance in Big Demand (August 31, 2004)

Lynne Cheney, wife of vice president Dick Cheney, will no doubt emphasize her conservative values when she addresses the Republican National Convention on Wednesday in New York. But some GOP delegates may be surprised to learn that Cheney once wrote a bodice-ripper about 19th-century Wyoming pioneer women engaged in a lesbian love affair. Cheney's 1981 first novel, Sisters, is the most sought-after out-of-print novel in the country this week, according to BookFinder.com, an online search service specializing in hard-to-find books. The site lists three paperback copies for sale; asking price is, ahem, $2,500. No word on whether Sisters was inspired on any level by the Cheneys' openly gay daughter, Mary. At Lynne Cheney's request, a publisher scrapped plans this spring to reissue the book; the author says she barely remembers the plot. But is the novel any good? A reviewer on Amazon.com says Cheney's novel is 'sure to please everyone from fun-loving fundamentalist Christians to plaid-flannel dykes...Lynne proves that even the cutest red-dress-wearing Republican lady craves a little gal-on-gal action at times.'

Wireless Flash News, Popular Books Could Impact Race For Presidency (August 31, 2004)

Fans and critics of John Kerry and Lynne Cheney are doing their best to hunt down copies of controversial books the two were involved with -- sometimes paying thousands of dollars for them. According to a newly-released report by BookFinder.com, an online book database, a Lynne Cheney-written 1981 novel, called 'Sisters,' and a Kerry-edited 1971 book, 'The New Soldier,' are among the most sought after out-of-print books. 'The New Soldier' (Simon & Schuster), which contains the candidate's views on the Vietnam War, ranks No. 2 in popularity for out-of-print nonfiction titles. However, that popularity has yielded a hefty price tag for the tome: On some web sites, the book is fetching thousands of dollars per copy. Meanwhile, tongues are wagging about Cheney's book, 'Sisters' (Penguin Group), a novel about 19th century feminist pioneers which deals in part with lesbian relationships. It the No. 1 most sought after out-of-print fiction title and fetching thousands of dollars from those curious about Mrs. Cheney's take on gay and lesbian issues.

The Business Journal, Out of Print, Not Out of Mind (August 30, 2004)

Their books may have been written decades ago, but this year's Presidential campaign is creating strong interest in tomes by candidate John Kerry and Lynne Cheney, wife of Vice President Dick Cheney, according to the latest BookFinder.com Report . In 1971, a young Kerry was back in the United States after his second tour of duty. He joined Vietnam Veterans Against the War, and volunteered to edit a book called The New Soldier, about the group's campaign to end what they saw as a badly mismanaged war, the report found. Three decades later, Kerry's Vietnam record is a matter of public debate, and The New Soldier is the "No. 2 most sought after out-of-print nonfiction title in America (just behind Madonna's Sex, a perennial fan favorite), the report found. Kerry fans and critics alike are hunting down copies of the book, hoping it can shed more light on the candidate's views on war and other foreign policy issues, according to the report.

The Capital (Annapolis, MD), Best of the British Novelists (July 18, 2004)

There's just something about British novelists. Maybe it's their precise and adept use of English - a language invented by their own ancestors, after all. Or maybe it's their stories, which have actual beginnings, middles and ends instead of the incoherent ramblings of more 'modern' writers. It could even be the exotic settings for those stories, no doubt influenced by the vastness of the old British Empire. Whatever the reasons, a number of Brits have dominated both the best-seller lists and discriminating readers' affections for a long time...It's hard to choose the best among them, but here, in no particular order, is my personal Top Ten. Some books mentioned here are in print and can be obtained from libraries and bookstores. Others may have gone out of print, but still may be found in used book shops or at Web sites like Amazon.com, Alibris and BookFinder.com.

Telegraph Herald (Dubuque, IA), Vintage Cookbook Dishes Humorous Asides / Author Salutes Those Who Hate to Cook (July 10, 2004)

Though the book will satisfy cravings for mid-century nostalgia, like all good books it remains contemporary at heart even though it was first published 44 years ago. I was startled to read Bracken's comment that the mania for coarsely ground pepper makes everything look like it's been rolled around in a gravel pit, having just been served an entre that looked exactly like that thanks to an overly generous hand with the blackened sesame seeds. You can find a gazillion editions and permutations, including the sequel The I Still Hate to Cook Book and The I Hate to Housekeep Book at one of my favorite websites, BookFinder.com, starting at a buck for a used copy.

Others have gone out of print but still may be found in used book shops or at Web sites like Amazon.com, Alibris and BookFinder.com.

EDN Europe, Power Control: Winning Big (May 13, 2004)

Demystifying an unfamiliar discipline can sometimes be difficult. Although universities concentrate on exotic technologies, less glamorous topics, such as power control, often receive scant exposure. For example, the leading bookstore in the UK university city of Cambridge recently had just two power-control texts on its shelves--one of which is unreadable unless you enjoy complex math between each paragraph...However, advances in materials technology enable vendors such as IMO, Omron, and Nais to produce relays with mechanical switching lifetimes of more than 10 million operations, which equates to switching once per minute for more than 15 years.

[BOOK] PC Magazine Best of the Internet by Don Wilmott (January 5, 2004)

Entertainment: Like Alibris, BookFinder.com helps you find the used, rare, or out-of-print books you need, but unlike Alibris, you don't buy the books at the site. Instead, BookFinder.com finds the book and then sends you directly to the bookseller to make your purchase. You could be in for quite a trip; there are 40,000 stores in the network, and they span the globe. BookFinder.com even lists what's available at the big online stores such as Amazon.com and even Alibris, so it offers the Web's most comprehensive way to conduct a sweeping book search (if not the most convenient way to buy several used books in a single sitting using a single shopping cart). The interface couldn't be more straightforward. Just search with as much information as you know, and optionally specify if you want a new or used or a first edition. You'll get back a potentially long list of available copies, with each seller specifying a price and details about the condition of the book. Curious about what's hot and what's not in the used bookstore? Check out the BookFinder.com Report, a collection of used-book best-seller lists. Anthony Adverse tops the fiction list, while Madonna's Sex comes in at number one on the arts chart. (Be prepared to spend at least $80 for your copy.)
