I gradutaed from University with a specialist degree in English, so I have had to read a lot of books over the years. I am in love with the english language and have always been an avid reader for as long as I could remember. My collection in quite extensive, especially my english literature books. I have so many books that I actually ran out of places to put them all, so I have some stored in the basement "storage room" (really a room to store junk) but no matter how much space I run out of I still have this horrible habit of buying more books.

    Seriously, it is so hard for me to walk away from a great book. Forget Chapters, I have had to forego visiting in person because I end up putting quite a dent in my wallet, although I have just started ordering from them online. I also love to thrift shop and I find a great number of my most beloved books from second hand shops around the city. I picked up a few things from my neighbourhood Value Village and received some of my online Chapters orders in the mail...take a look.

    great coffee table reads

    cute second hand books, look what I found when I removed the book jacket...

    lovely dinner bell in antique brass

    a personal fav, my vintage copy of my favourite Shakespearean play Romeo & Juliet, plus my new candelabra that says made in Italy

    For those of you who love books as much as I do, I want to recommend a little store on the Danforth called Re:Reading where I am sure you will find some great books, they have a vast collection and a section of rare and collectibles. You can also take a load off and sit in their comfy couches at the front of the store to do a little what else... reading!
