Why not take advantage of our knowledge and commitment to customer service when you’re thinking of gift-giving?


Book a Month Subscription


What it is:

We will choose a book for a recipient of your choice every month! We do not send the same book to everyone; each selection is catered to the preferences and interests of the recipient. At the start of the subscription we love to hear from you, or them, about what genres they enjoy, authors they love, books they’ve liked recently, topics they’re interested in, and perhaps most importantly what they don’t enjoy reading.



While we call the subscription ‘book-a-month,’ it is very customisable. You specify the frequency and duration of your gift – it could be one book every other month for a year, a book every month for four months, a book every three months indefinitely. Up to you!



For payment, we will keep your credit card information on file and charge it when the book is sent out. You can set a price limit for us to adhere to every month. Something to keep in mind when setting your limit: paperbacks typically range from $20-$30, while hardcovers are often $30-$50. We do also charge for shipping, more on that below.



The subscription can either be delivered to the recipient or picked up in store. Shipping cost varies based on postal code – in Toronto it can range from $6 to $12, and in Ontario $13+. We can give you an exact quote given the address of the recipient. If you would like to reduce shipping costs we can always bundle books and send, for example, three books together every three months.


Please get in touch if you would like to set up a subscription or have any questions. This is one of our favourite services we provide here at the store; we love selecting books every month and finding someone their next favourite read!



Let us choose your books for you! 


We spend a lot of time in the store making recommendations, so you can be sure we'll be picking your presents with the same care we bring to our customers standing in the store.


If you can tell us about the person you're buying for we're confident that we can pick a book that will suit your needs.

We're trying to make your shopping as easy as possible, so don't hesitate to ask us for book ideas, or combinations that you have in mind.


Alternatively, if you have a specific book in mind we'll let you know how long it will take to get it to you or the recipient of your choice.


We can easily ship your books out, or ring them through and bring them out to your car with advance notice if you aren't able to come into the store to pick them up.


Gift Certificates

We offer gift certificates of any denomination.


Gift certificates can be purchased in store, over the phone, or through our webstore.


We offer both paper and pdf certificates and they can be mailed or emailed to the recipient.


Gift certificates do not expire. They are non-refundable and cannot be redeemed for cash.


One important thing to remember is that publishers can run out of popular titles. If there's a book you're keen to obtain, don't wait too long to do it.
