A Good Read
A Good Read is one the best places in the city to find rare books, with particular emphasis placed on first and signed editions. Opened in fall of 2007 on Roncesvalles Avenue in Parkdale, its sophisticated decor matches the focus on more expensive books.
But if rare books aren't your thing, there is also a good selection of secondhand and remaindered books at reasonable prices. The owner, Gary Kirk, has been in the book business for over twelve years, and his experience shows when customers seek advice on purchasing choices or stop by to discuss new arrivals.
With the sizable space of the store, plans are in the works to host events in the future. The store also does web-based sales through Abe Books.
