Discount stores and warehouse clubs have several criteria for selecting the products they sell, as do most retailers. They want 1) products that will attract more people to their stores, 2) maximum profitability per square foot and 3) more frequent inventory turns. Books are discounted heavily and do not offer the margins that some larger-ticket products do.
Book buyers at discount stores rarely purchase directly from publishers, but from distributors or wholesalers. One top middleman is Anderson Merchandisers, a distributor of pre-recorded music, movies, and books to retail stores in the United States. Contact: Book Purchasing Department, Anderson Merchandisers, 421 East 34th Street, Amarillo, TX 79103 (buys for Wal-Mart); Phone: (806) 376-6251 (http://www.amerch.com/index.html

“I really feel more connected to the specialty world and I now have some immediate actions.”
Tony Robbins’ Rule #4 on how to give a presentation (Fortune): Know your outcome. “You need an outline of what you want to do, but the key is to know your outcome. I pick outcomes that I’m passionate about. I don’t think anyone should ever speak about anything they’re not passionate about. If your not passionate about something, no one else is going to be, and you’re wasting everyone’s/ time.”
