Sometimes, there is nothing better than wading through a stack of books, shelved in the organized chaos that reminds you of your parent/grandparent’s collection, or your local public library. The books that made you form a love for words, and continue to make you want to browse the volumes offered by independent booksellers. For those times, here is MTL Blog’s list of places the city has to offer.
Drawn and Quarterly
Where: 211 Bernard Ouest
Why: Well integrated into Montreal’s literary community, D&Q regularly hosts book launches for local authors. With its own comic book micro-press, the store has a vested interest in comic books, but carries an array of Canadian and international journals that you’d be hard pressed to find anywhere else. Read: for back copies of the Paris Review, this is your spot.
