What people are saying:

And Aqua Books, on Garry St., is one of the craziest, most amusing and well-ordered second-hand bookstores I have ever frequented. Upstairs, in what had been a Chinese restaurant (the panelling and the décor and the kitchen still there) the owner, Kelly Hughes, maintains three studios for writers-in-residence, and the old dining room, complete with stage and fainting couches, is reserved for readings. Walking tours are popular (and a good idea) in the city, and readers can pick up a brochure here for Hughes' BookWalk too. - Noah Richler, Toronto Star

FEATURED NEW ARRIVALS FOR THE WEEK OF 1/14/08


PLEASE NOTE: Due to our upcoming move and restaurant opening (back-breaking renovations/mind-numbing details/etc.), we will only be putting fifty books on this page weekly (instead of the usual hundred or so) until after our move in March 2008. There are still lots of new books going out on the shelves, but this page doesn't build itself every week I'm afraid.

(To hold or order any of these books [or to check on current availability], please email kelly@aquabooks.ca.)
