As you can see I’ve been doing a lot of reading (and writing) lately!
As great as places like Chapters and Amazon are, there is something special about stepping into a one-man business that is solely devoted to books. I love buying books from independent stores (when they have the titles I want) because it supports a family and it gives me a little pleasure kick that I can’t quite put into words.
So, whenever you can, I say you step into a small bookstore and browse for a while. I found three great book shops in Toronto that you can shop at. Listed in alphabetical order they are:
They have the upcoming release of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (at midnight on July 30th) with a dramatic reading and butterbeer)!
They’re offering ice water to get us through the heat this summer!
They have interesting poetry and life of poet books available to people (like me) who eat them up!
What are you waiting for? Check them out!
