We’ve known Lance and Jim from Chrislands since their days running Bookopoly, an online marketplace they ran from 1999 to 2003. Congrats, guys.
The Chrislands team will remain at their current location near Washington, DC. They’ll be following the same model as us. BookFinder.com was acquired by AbeBooks two and a half years ago, but we remain an independently managed subsidiary. We’ve enjoyed being able to draw upon AbeBooks’ resources, treating them as a consulting firm we can call upon as needed (e.g. we brought in their designers to help us do a big visual redesign). I expect Chrislands will be able to do the same.Posted by Anirvan
