This is good place to spend some spare time. You may come up with some really good and hard to find books in their used books collection and get them for a bargain price.
There are so few used book stores around anymore that this is a real gem. Originally dealing with collector and rare editions when it opened, it now carries thousands of books of all types.
The sci-fi section is particularly large and noteworthy, but there are also many classics, poetry, mysteries, plays and everything else. They even have sheet music available.

I can't help but spend nearly an hour looking around this place every time I go. It's a great bookstore and the staff are very helpful. I will keep going here for sure.
When I am looking for classic literature in hardcover or paper, or biography and history I often come here. It's a big space on two floors and the stock is impressive (they have a warehouse as well, so ask about this if you don't see your title on the shelves). I probably buy 10-20 books here in a year. The owners are always helpful.
Used and rare books. Small family owned business. Established in 1974. Located in Centretown, Ottawa; a few blocks south of Parliament Hill.
