Booksybooks. an online bookshop.

What I hope from this little venture is to make it easier for people who loves books and bargains to surf through & shop for cheap books online.
My intent is to spread these books around and reinvest their values into new readers.

The books are second-hand of course and comes with faults here and there. But I feel that gives them character. Personally, I love wondering where these books come from and who has read them before. I hope you will come to feel the same way too...

In Bellocq's Women, Peter Everett not only brings the photographer to life- and with him his strange, tortured relationship with his mother and two young girls - but also his world, the opium dens and bar rooms of New Orleans and the whore houses with their surreal combination of violence and homeliness.
