Interview with Kim Johnson of Better Bindings

When did you get started in bookselling?
I started selling books in 2010 with my friend. I have always been interested in rare books.
What drew you to bookselling?
Knowledge. Every time I walk into a bookstore or library, I am overwhelmed with all the knowledge.
Did you have any mentors in becoming a bookseller?
My friend who get me started. He was doing it for the money. One day, we came across a copy of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. It was in good condition and was very expensive. I was hooked on his eyes and I realized that it was more than just the money.
What are your specialties as a dealer?
Rare books, treasure hunting books.
What's the most amazing book you've ever sold?
It was years ago, but it was a copy of My 50 Year French Treasure Hunt by Henry Gestefield. It was a hard book to find.
What is your favorite part of being a bookseller?
So far, I just enjoy going through my inventory.
Do you have an open storefront or have you in the past?
No.
If so, do/did you have any bookstore pets?
What is the funniest / strangest / scariest thing that ever happened in your store?
What do you personally like to read? Collect?
Yes I like to read and collect also.
