The Amazon Kindle Store is full of eBooks of all kinds on antiques and collectibles. This is going to be a really short article, but could save you a great deal of money if you have one of the many devices that allow you to read eBooks.
Before you buy the printed version, check to see if the title you are trying to find is available in electronic form. It makes carrying your reference books much easier when you are out searching for your favorite antiques or collectibles. I would see people looking through their price guides trying to see if the item they had just found is a good price or not. Sometimes they would have six or seven different price guides in their car. But if you have the Kindle Fire or similar eReader or tablet, you can carry it everywhere and have it available when you go shopping or attend an auction.
I can’t tell you how many times I would see something at an auction or shopping and wonder what it was selling for now. Too many times I missed a good buy because I just didn’t know how much I should pay for a particular item. It is just not practical to carry a lot of books when you are traveling or shopping with friends. The portability of tablets and readers is what has made these so popular. Many will fit in a purse so they will be there when you need them. If you have several of your favorite antiques price guides downloaded, they are available whenever you need them. Unfortunately, many are still not available as eBooks, but more and more are becoming available as authors realize the potential of this growing love of eBooks.
I told you this was going to be short. So if you have the ability to read eBooks on a portable device, see if some of the books about antiques and collectibles is available from the Kindle Store on Amazon.
