  1. Munro’s Books (Victoria, British Columbia) Jim and Alice Munro  (oh yes, that Alice Munro) opened up this lovely nook of a book spot back in 1963.
  2. Glad Day Bookshop (Toronto, Ontario). They have every title to do with Pride.
  3. Pages on Kensington (Calgary Alberta)
  4. Type Books (Toronto, Ontario)
  5. Mondragon (Winnipeg, Manitoba)
  6. Bookmark Inc. (Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island + Halifax, Nova Scotia)
  7. Drawn & Quarterly Bookstore (Montreal, Quebec)
  8. Ella Minnow (Toronto, Ontairo
  9. Woozles (Halifax, Nova Scotia)
  10. Owl’s Nest (Fredrichton, New Brunswick)

  12. The World Bookstore (Montreal, Quebec)

  24. Doug Miller Books (Toronto, Ontario)


With a complete bias, my personal favourite is Doug Miller’s. He has a sweet bunny who loves carrots, and walls packed floor to ceiling with just about all conceivable books. Science fiction, fantasy collections, philosophy, young adult fiction.. A definite must see whenever you drop into Toronto!


Where are your favourite bookstores? (I love adding to my list, there’s so many!)



Happy reading, dears 🙂
