Holiday Ordering Tips

Hello booklovers! This is such an unusual year and we have experienced so much supply disruption we want to give you clear information to ensure you get the books you need by the time you need them. To the left, find some our top tips to avoid disappointment in the gift-giving rush.

Below, we have created easy gift-giving lists so you can tick off the trickier folks on your list!

We appreciate all of you and know that together we can get through this challenging time. Thanks for sticking with us!

They Already Have Everything!
Everyone's got that one person on their list: they buy the things they want or need before you have a chance to gift them. Luckily, we've done some extra sleuthing this year so that you can surprise them with a book they didn't know they were looking for!
For the Future Jeopardy! Champ
Every family and friend group has that one person who hoovers up facts like they're breathing air. These books will help them maintain their Trivia World Championship title belt through the holidays and beyond!
For the Armchair Hercule Poirot
There's nothing more festive than a murder! Here is a wide-ranging selection of books that will test the amateur sleuth on your list and challenge them to solve the case before the book is over!
Reader Seeks Aliens/Wizards for Thrilling Date Night(s)
Sometimes even fictitious representations of our world aren't a good enough escape. Venture into these wonderful tales of imagined worlds and realities to take you far away.
Travel From the Comfort of Home
Sometimes we need a little escape. These books, set outside of BC, are perfect for the person on your list who likes to visit new places, but who may not have travel plans on the horizon.
Gather Around the Table
There's nothing better than a gift that keeps giving--especially when that constant giving includes food. Take a look at our choices for the cookbooks we're sure will help you discover new staples to make your meals more enjoyable!
Find Some Inner Peace
It's been a year, to say the least! These books will help you practice some mindfulness as you relax over the holidays and plan to tackle the new year head on.
Book Series for Young Readers
There's nothing better than receiving a great book as a gift, only to find out that it's the beginning of a new series! Here are some of our favourites to get the eager young reader in your life, excited about a new book series.
Calendars and Dayplanners
Board Games
Whether your game table is a hotbed for competitive warfare or you're more keen on easier-going, bonding experiences, we've added a great selection of board games to suit everyone's play-style!
Stocking Stuffers
The perfect little add-on for the booklover in your life!
Maybe you already know this, but we've become a little bit more than a bookstore over the past few months. We've added a range of puzzles to our stock so you can challenge your brain: either solo or with the whole family!
