I don't know why you would want to start a bookshop, tight margins and many companies going out of business in no small part due to Amazon.

Apart from the e-books is the way to go. Printed literature is going downhill

I know..
thank for the advice..
any clues on my Q?
Gary

You would be best starting off with Wordpress and then adding on WooCommerce

Then maybe this for the barcodes
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
