As you mentioned there are thousands of books, at least 5,000. Many were bought in bulk purchases over the years and many area very old-back to the 1700`s. It is about as full of range of types and eras as it possibly could be.
I would be interested in setting up a web page. In fact my wife has already created one for me to use. It`s just a matter of me putting it all the books into a digital inventory and posting it.
Over time, as I sell books I would like to become much more narrow in my focus of subjects. I would also like to be a "business" to receive the discounts available and not pay the taxes at purchase time of new inventory.
So, is all this thinking right? Is all this appropriate with a sole proprietorship as mentioned above? Thanks!
