Books Are Everything, a large fanzine devoted to vintage paperbacks, was published in the late 1980's and into the mid-1990's. It ran 30-issues. In addition to the articles mentioned, it was filled with paperback cover photos, checklists (of author or artist work), ads and news of interest to collectors. It also had an extensive letters column where collectors shared opinions (pre-internet-newsgroup style) along with gossip and lots of information. Color was used for several pages of cover repros in some of the later issues.

Collecting Paperbacks? was an early fanzine in the hobby. This stapled, mimeographed publication circa 1980 helped early hobbyists to swap information in the days when many paperback lovers built their collections largely by networking and swapping with other collectors. These are new copies but some show shelfwear from their 20-years of existence!
