  • I always shop here when I come to Penticton, the shop is huge and has a great selection. So many books so little time.  more »
  • Great finds and treasures at reasonable prices. Staff is very knowledgeable. Ask for Ron, she knows it well.  more »
  • If you love books, you’ll love this spot. It is noted as the largest second hand book store in Canada and I believe it! Great selection for pretty much any category/subject you are looking for. Prices range depending on the type of book. Staff is super friendly and helpful. Happy book hunting!
  • I love this book shop and stop here every time I'm in Penticton. I'm sure they have a category for everything, but I haven't explored all of it, even still. I tend to like some older/out of print stuff and I always find at least a couple things on my list.
