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 3/24/08


PLEASE NOTE: This is the last New Books page before our move in April 2008. Due to the absolute chaos of renovating our new 8400 sq. ft. building on Garry, we have only been putting fifty books on this page for the last few weeks (instead of the usual hundred or so). The New Books page will return to full strength after our re-opening.

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