Dear Friends,

Thank you for your patience, and for the many messages of support you sent us during the unexpectedly lengthy lockdown.
While we remain rather uneasy, we are slowly beginning to start operating again. We are working short hours and short weeks, still concerned about travelling to and from work, still concerned about physical distancing. We are sure you share our concerns.
Some of our publishing partners are located in US hot spots and our shipping partners are working under duress, so everything is taking a little longer than usual.
We are accepting orders, and shipping them, effective immediately.
You can call us at the store, 416.361.0032, but because we aren't always there, and because there are never more than two of us in the store at any given time, we advise you to e-mail us  at with requests or orders, which will ensure that we can communicate more effectively.
At some point we may be doing curbside pickups, but for now we would prefer not to do that.
Again, we thank you profoundly for your encouragement and support, and we hope you are all safe, and ready for something good to read.
