Always wanted a beautiful, personable bookstore you could call home?

We are on the same page.

Our aim is to reflect the wide-ranging tastes of our clientele and our neighbourhood. We are currently in another temporary location which will look different than the pictures you see here. We hope, however, to find a permanent location soon, one which we will be able to design similarly to our previous store.


Our inventory is always changing, and it is our profound hope that you will find books here that you won't find elsewhere. 

On the internet you can find what you're looking for; in our store you can find what you are not looking for.


We take requests for assistance very seriously; we all read constantly and our recommendations are chosen with an eye to creating a long term relationship with you as a customer. 


We do a lot of special orders, and maintain contacts in the US and the UK that allow us to source books that are not readily available in this country.
