May 2018
 

Thank you Port Coquitlam! 


Did you know that our very first day to sell books was at last year’s Biz Alley at the weekend May Day events? We have come a long way since our little table with our small selection of gathered books.

To celebrate and offer a big Thank You to our Port Coquitlam (and Tri-Cities, of course!) customers, all used books are 10% off this weekend, Saturday May 12th and Sunday May 13th.

Come on in before or after the parade & picnic and other fabulous Port Coquitlam May Day festivities.
 
 
We changed our hours slightly, in order to be responsive to your requests and also to do a bit of book seller self-care. We are still open 7 days a week, so come on in to find your next book love!
 

Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday 10am-6pm
Thursday, Friday 10am-7pm
Sunday, Monday  11am-4pm

 
Also, we extended our Sunday/Monday Buy-One-Get-One 50%/25% through the month of May! Yay cheap books!
