Asheville, NC (PRWEB) September 17, 2005
Biblio.com, a used, rare, and out-of-print books selling web site, announced today that they have reached 25 million titles listed through their online presence. Biblio.com provides an online service connecting book buyers and collectors with thousands of independent booksellers worldwide.
Biblio has added more than 5 million listings and 600 new independent book dealers in last 3 months, continuing their substantial growth in the used book industry.
ÂThe used, rare, and out-of-print book market has seen major maturation in the last 5 years. Our company is poised to make an impact on this industry in a positive and highly competitive way,Â says Kevin Donaldson, Director of Sales and Marketing for Biblio.com. ÂBy consistently adding titles to our product offerings, we can expand what the Biblio.com customer is growing to expect; quality and selection!Â
Biblio.com also knows that growing too fast can be detrimental. ÂThe key part of our growth is not simply a net increase in books - which is, sadly, too often the focus in our industry - but to provide our customers with an increase in the number of quality books from quality booksellers.Â says Brendan Sherar, CEO of Biblio.com Inc.
The kind of growth Biblio.com is experiencing has now placed them as one of the largest selling venues of its kind in the world. Other large players that have begun to focus more on selling used and out-of-print books in the last 5-10 years are Amazon.com, and Barnes and Noble bookstores. Many of the larger companies utilize companies like Biblio.com to provide this data to them to list through their own sites.
Biblio.com Inc. is now one of the leading sources for used, rare, out-of-print, and hard-to-find books in the world. With the launch of their online services in February 2003, Biblio.com entered a market dominated by several major companies, as well as more than a dozen smaller competitors. With substantial growth in the last two years, Biblio.com has gone from a fledgling company to becoming the third largest site of its kind in the world. Biblio.com now offers more than 25 million titles from 3500 independent booksellers in 26 countries.
