A Few Opening Words from ASK: Adrienne Sioux Koopersmith/Chicago, IL USA:
I suddenly woke up this morning at 5:11 with a delightful IT: Idea/Thought. As a Reader/Writer/Author and one who has always supported Literature & the Arts, I seem to have collected (and proudly so) an Excess of Books. However, I feel the same way: You can never have that many Books. They are just the Greatest Gift to give while they also remain the greatest Gift to receive; while they are the greatest Items to collect. Therefore, in order to pass along many of the Books I have accumulated, I am starting an Online eBay Shop on my very own Blog called KOOPERSMITHin’ here that will be aptly named:
$3-BUCKS-A-BOOK - ASK'S BOOK STALL.
The idea is to ‘stall’ no more. Look at all of the Books ‘out there’ that you will never read. This Selection that I am selling are proven winners; always interesting and real page-turners.
As we all know and have seen before our very eyes: The Publishing Industry is in a Shift and Change. So many Books are now eBooks. Libraries are dismantling their Bookshelves making way for Cyber Copies. Yet, I can honestly say that the better times of my life have been when I have been ‘just’ sitting there and reading a Book. And, for those times where you have been in a state of limbo or on the outskirts of being ‘bored’ the action to take is to:
“Stall no more! Here's a Selection of Books that are cheap enough to read yourself and then pass on!”
A Win-Win Situation from all Angles.
This Operation is designed for only Chicagoans, West Suburban & North Shore Residents (or travelers passing through the area)- as I won’t be mailing the Texts out due to their give-away & el-cheapo prices.

HISTORICALLY: This is an Extension of my ABC: Adrienne’s Book Critiques ©2002 whereby I promoted Authors & reviewed their Books placing my Evaluations online & distributed those Reviews to hundreds of thousands of Personalities/Businesses & Outlets. For those of you wondering how the Name came about, the Explanation can be said in 137 Characters (3 Characters short of a full-sized Twitter) and those are:
When I was ‘bored’ (imagine that), one day in the 1990s, BUC PANTELIS, a friend simply told me this: “Put your mind into a Good Story.”
He actually ‘said’ Book. I readjusted the Copy as that’s what we Writers naturally do to enhance the Flow of the Words on the Page. It’s a Part of our self-derived Job description. I feel those Words are synonymous - one in the same. Those Words were never forgotten. I’m sure BUC would not mind or worry about that mild readjustment.
