    Is there any way to have email notices about books in specific collecting areas of my interest?

    In a related story. The Newtown Bee, published in Connecticut, a weekly nationally circulated antiques newspaper (the size of a large issue of the NY Daily News) has a website and if you are a subscriber to the paper newspaper, they will send you emails of auction items advertised in the current issue of your interests!

    We don’t currently have this capability, but it’s a great suggestion. We will look into it!
