The Modern Bookscout Continues

Back in November, I re-posted here part of a blog on modern book scouts by bookseller Matthew Jones. He has continued the series on his site -- part 2 titled “Local Scouts, Local Booksellers” (he’s in the San Fran area) and the newest installment, part 3, titled “Isn’t Technology Grand?” about scouting with handheld scanners. Here’s a bit:

I also know more than a few “secret scouts” who keep their scanners hidden until the last minute, on the low down so to speak, thinking nobody will know what they’re up to if only they keep that little toy in their pants, as if it were a crime or something only they know about. Fact is that TONS of people know about scanning, but not everyone is into it.
