  • I make a point of visiting this bookstore whenever I'm in Montreal. It has such an eclectic selection, and I could easily spend an hour just browsing. I'm particularly grateful for the Greek, Latin and ancient history texts I've found here over the years, most of which I've never been able to locate in any other store (and not even on Amazon, in some cases). The prices are always fair, and I love that the owners simply leave me to browse without interruption. I'll definitely keep coming back to this store.
  • I think this might be the first google review I've ever left, if that speaks to the quality of this bookstore. Anyway, it is my favorite and has never disappointed me. I highly recommend it, whether it be for cheap rarities or even cheaper classics.
