ihelena:

I went to Ebony and Ivory in Cheonan yesterday! Man, that is such a bizarre place for a store like that. The sheer numebr of books, and ONLY in English in.......... Cheonan???? Pretty blown away. My gf was talking to a woman there who came from Daejeon to come to the store, specifically. It's not super far but still, it's a fair distance to come.

Pretty impressed. I'll have to go back soon and do a thorough scour of the place. 

I'm glad you liked it! It's really the kind of tiny, crowded used bookstore I'd expect from back home. I think that's why I liked it so much. I was surprised they even have kids books! When I've gone to Kyobo or others I've never been able to find easy readers or little chapter books in English.

Have you sold them used books before?
Catch my drift?

All the time. CDs and Blu-Rays, too. If its recent and in good condition, they'll pay out pretty well.

And it's cash in hand, too.
