Book lovers should go to Bearly Used Books in Parry Sound. I could have spent hours there. I kept bringing piles of books to the counter. I ended up buying 19 books for the price of 3 paperbacks. The prices can't be beat. I've been to used book stores before but this one is by far the best. I even... More

You could spend hours in there! Every type of book is there for a fraction of what you would spend brand new. Old books, new titles...it's like a treasure hunt every summer for us when we come looking for books to read up at the cottage. Definitely worth a stop a Parry Sound!

We spent over an hour browsing and could have stayed longer if we wanted to spend more money- but I had to leave before I broke my budget. Lots of great finds including children's books, literature, poetry and fun fiction! A book lovers paradise. And remarkably well organized - if you know what you are looking for they'll find it...

We live in Ottawa but save all of our used books to trade in at Bearly Used Books while visiting in Parry Sound! By far the best used book store I've found (living in Ottawa or London) and staff is always ready to help find what you're looking for - for me this usually entails looking for a new author... More

Strolling along Seguin St., we discover Bearly Used Books, a treasure trove of over 100,000 books owned by Melissa Thomson and neatly divided into various categories for easy picking. Melissa tells me that she enjoys regular customers from both Toronto and London. They use a credit system for used books and enjoy an incredible stock of Canadiana as well as... More

We drop in every year when we're in town, and this charming shop, chock-a-block full of book delights, never disappoints. My 14-year old daughter has even included it in her birthday plans! Reasonable prices, and excellent selection make this well worth a visit. -SP - teacher-librarian in Toronto
