What people are saying:

I've always wanted to come here and now I see why! - Carl Hochheim, Winnipeg

FEATURED NEW ARRIVALS FOR THE WEEK OF 2/18/08


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.)
