Fat chance. Most cruisers I know use book exchanges or swap with other cruisers. My take is that its pretty hard to make a living off cruisers.

Surprised they didnt call it "BookShip" instead of "Bookshop".

There is. It's pretty hush hush. It's called the internet. OR the world wide web sometimes. Try a google search.

You know, I agree. It is hard to make a living off cruisers.

However, I frequently buy books at used book stores, then leave them in give-a-book, take-a-book when done reading them.

I'd have a browse of this business for sure if it were nearby.

Even better than used book stores are thrift shops. I do the same as you.
