Book collecting is a popular hobby and mystery book collecting can be both fun and profitable. We know that we all love reading mysteries but when you are also into book collecting, combining the two is a great hobby. Understanding what to look for to get the maximum profit can be a bit daunting, especially if you are just starting out. We have found your answer.
A special friend of Mystery Book World, and a mystery book lover herself, Mandee has written a great article all about Mystery Book Collecting. She describes what to look for when you are searching for the best way to begin your collection.
Of course, you don’t have to collect mystery books for the investment that may pay off when you sell them. My own mystery book collection is full of the books that I enjoy reading, sometimes over and over again. I collect mystery books just because I love them. And I save my favorites in a special place in my own library.
As Mandee discusses in her article, trying to predict the future value of a new author is difficult. So you want to pick mysteries that sound good for you to enjoy. The purpose of books is to enjoy reading them, after all. Therefore, start off with what you will like. Then protect that book and keep it in a safe place. You may be making an investment in your future.
Whether you collect mystery books for your own enjoyment or as an investment, you’ll want to be well informed. Series from popular authors can make a great starting point for your collection.
