She is too fond of books, and it has turned her brain. (1873)

The things I want to know are in books; my best friend is the man who'll get me a book I ain't read. -
~ Abraham Lincoln ~

A Note on Shipping Costs:  Canada Post has ended the lower priced surface mail shipping to the U.S.. Standard shipping is now Airmail Parcel.  Surface and Airmail is still available to International (non-U.S.) destinations. (see shipping info in left column for all details). 

This website uses shopping cart software which allows us to set one rate only for each destination and shipping method.  Shipping estimates shown are based on a medium sized book, weighing up to 500 grams (or approx. 18 ounces) and your actual shipping costs may vary. If your book is very light, shipping will be reduced. If your order is heavier (over 500 grams) or oversized, we will contact you to let you know extra shipping is required.  Please see Shipping Info page to view all shipping estimates.

Book Values:  For those wishing to inquire about the value of their older books, please see the Book Valuations section in the left navigation column.

If you don't see what you're looking for, please fill out our Book Request form and we'll be happy to try to find it for you. We will search our off-line inventory, other bookstores and book search services & let you know what's available.
