  • Favorite place in all of penticton. The owner and staff are awesome!! Very helpful. Great selection. If you love to read you'll love this store as much as do!!
  • This is the most amazing used book store. A real treasure. Amazing staff. You will always find what you need + a lot that you never know you did too. A must visit.
  • That smell of old books:) love this place! Super cozy, theres a little bit of everything in here new and used.. also might be the last living video rental store..? And pugs!
  • Large, varied selection of books. The dry air of the Okanagan keeps them by and large in good condition. Reasonable prices.
  • Amazing! 5+ for the sheer volume of books, the selection, prices, and especially the staff! They ate so friendly and so helpful.
