Burrowing Bookworm of CA

Burrowing Bookworm of CA

I focus heavily on film, Egyptian archeology, aviation and mystery books but you never know what will interest me next. Shop around and you may find science fiction, nature photography, field guides, bad 50's monster videos....you name it and it may be here!

You might consider it old-fashioned but my philosophy towards family, friends, strangers and customers is one and the same and based on only one concept,the Golden Rule. Yep, the old "do unto others" conviction. Works for me. So that means my policy for customers is quite basic. Do your best to keep folk happy. If you're not, neither am I. That means I don't quibble about refunds when something isn't right and I try to be as accurate and fast as possible. I am also an avid reader/film buff myself so I gear my offerings towards what I'm interested in. And since I have very eclectic and far-ranging interests, my selections seem to veer in every direction. Hopefully you'll find something in my listings that works for you!
