Charles E. Roberts
After graduating from college, Chuck took a summer job in a bookstore in Maryland before heading to graduate school in the fall. He never made it to grad school. He grew up loving books, seeking them out wherever he could, pestering his siblings for rides to the local used bookshops and raiding his brothers’ rooms. Quickly adapting to the internet, he now has over 2.5 million items for sale online, from antiquarian material to records, movies, software and games. He does still enjoys those quiet moments when he can sit down with a stack of books and work with them himself. Chuck joined the ABAA in 2003. Wonder Book operates out of Frederick, MD and specializes in general antiquarian material. ABAA Member since 2003. Interviewed by Michael Ginsberg on November 17, 2018 at the Boston International Antiquarian Book Fair.
