Bio

Michael Popek is the owner of family-run used and rare bookstore in Otego, N.Y. He has been in the book business since junior high school, when his father bought a vanload of used books at an auction and decided to see if there was any money to be made off them. Since then, his family has built a successful used-book business that combines a brick-and-mortar location with an online presence that ships books all over the world. As owner of the bookstore, Popek buys books from libraries, estates and individuals on a regular basis. His first Forgotten Bookmark, which he posted in June 2007, was a handwritten note found in a paperback copy of "The Blind Assassin" by Margaret Atwood. Since that post, more than 1500 items have been featured on the website.

  1. Hello Michael. Loved adding "Forgotten Bookmarks" to my personal library (which is focused on books about books, as well as "culinary arts"). Now "Handwritten Recipes" sits comfortably next to it!!
    One note: on page 30 - the recipe for "Sour Milk Biscuit". I believe that the "2 C.G.M. flour" refers to Gold Medal Flour (not graham) which has been around since about 1880.
    Thank you for your delightful books!
    Regards,
    Ava
