What people are saying:

I am one of your new subscribers to your online weekly updates. I find them fascinating, and entertaining. They remind me of my cultural background...Spanish...where folks could get together and loudly, sometimes irreverently, discuss differences of opinion and still go home with egos intact. It has always saddened me how "polite" we all are here in Canada, and how much we miss by not giving our real opinions for fear of offending someone. Carry on. Salud y Buena suerte! - Carmen Lopez, Winnipeg

FEATURED NEW ARRIVALS FOR THE WEEK OF 2/25/08


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.)
