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

The new Aqua Books is located at 274 Garry Street, between Portage and Graham (always on the right-hand if you're driving, as Garry runs south off Portage.) There are three parking spots available at the back of the building for Aqua/EAT! customers, although you'll need to go around front to get in. (If you try to go through the back, you might get roughed-up by our unstable dishwasher as you pass through his dishpit.)
