No, but eBay is nearly as good. A while ago I sold a book to Victor Watson, editor of The Cambridge Guide to Children's Books in English. This resulted in a very interesting correspondence, at the end of which he sold me all his John & Mary books. Which was nice.

Now today (and how's this for a coincidence, minnimoll?) I have sold one of his own books to the author David Severn! I have all his Warner and Waggoner books and I can't wait to get his letter.
