"When you're sick of mega bookstore chains" Top 5 Page for this destination Book / magazine stores Tip by MissAntarctica2002

Book / magazine stores, Toronto: 14 reviews and 15 photos


These days when I go into a mega bookstore like Chapters/Indigo or Barnes and Noble I find myself getting bored pretty quickly. While the stores are big, the selection is usually limited to the top sellers.

To counteract this I love to shop at independent bookstores like Nicholas Hoare. This store has a wonderful ambiance with gorgeous wooden shelves. Although the shop is on the small side, it carries a tremendous selection of stimulating books on all kinds of topics.

At the centre of the store are nice comfy chairs.
