I was searching Google for second hand bookstores near my office. I have more books than I know what to do with, and we may be moving office. I was hoping to sell some of the less memorable ones to a second hand bookstore nearby so I don't have to cart them around.

Look what I found.

First, a suggestion that perhaps some of the more notable figures among our political opposition would be better off going into business themselves, like running a second hand bookshop. Got to give credit to the contributor. It's hard to fault his or her logic. I even believe it may work. But it'll probably not be taken up.

Next, a case study of a second hand book store in Ireland - "Kennys Second Hand Bookstore opened its doors on Friday 19th November 1940 selling a selection of second hand schoolbooks donated to Des and Maureen Kenny by their friends. Since then, Kennys has come to be regarded as the worldwide specialists in both published Irish Literature and antiquarian books in a range of subjects." - it's a very interesting read, and soon I was forgetting what I was supposed to be doing and following the links on this site.

Which leads me to - "Helping Irish companies grow in world markets". If you've ever spent any part of your waking life worrying about how to make your company grow, you will find something interesting here. There've compiled a very wide range of case studies and they're very well-organised and easy to navigate. These people are definitely not going through the motions here.
