Bas Bleu mailer (I think I may have posted about it). If you haven't looked at their catalog, I encourage you to do so. They have some wonderful and interesting titles, as well as other book-related products.
Then today I received a catalog from a company I was unfamiliar with although it's probably been around for awhile (maybe a long time. I don't know). Here's the link to Daedalus Books.
That sent me scurrying to find more book catalogs, and right off the bat I realized that I had forgotten about Hamilton Books. How could I have forgotten? I used to savor those catalogs, and I ordered quite a few reference books from them back in the day.
Dover Books also seems to still offer paper catalogs (such fun and interesting titles).
Then there's National Geographic. They sell lots of things but also a number of books, and they'll still mail you a paper catalog showcasing their products if you request it.
I'm sure there are more, and...while I totally understand the reason for having fewer book catalogs than in the past, I do miss settling down with a great book catalog (I used to love the day the Barnes & Noble catalog arrived, but it has to be enormously expensive to mail catalogs out now and probably not all that productive).
Of course, all of these stores offer online shopping as well, so we have options.
Where do you obtain most of your books these days? Brick and mortar stores, online shops, the library, garage/rummage sales, trading among friends and family or some other method? (I do love a good library).
Have a fantastic day!
