Huge selection, old school bookstore

One of TO's landmarks established way before huge chains like Indigo, Chapters and webstores like Amazon without the fru-fru coffee bar. Can spend hours and hours here discovering books. Support your independent bookstore and buy a book, the old school way!

Awesome selection

Can't find a book, well look no further. This place has it. Even books that were out of print you can problably still find here. Easy to find close to the eaton centre and subway lines.

Once, I forgot an ID card here and they called me and left a message on my... more

I love the World's Biggest Bookstore.  I love its wide selection of books and the employees' helpfulness.  I love the respite from the busy city.  And I love its much maligned basic, unassuming, er, decor.
