This is a great little book store located in the downtown Ganges, located near the harbour. This seem to be a new building with numerous books on a multi floors. Owner is friendly & you can also see local artists paintings available for purchase.

The place is jam packed with all kinds of used and old books at reasonable prices. Loved the book smell when we walked in. Lots of variety and well organized for browsing.

Lots of interesting titles and much diversity in what they carry. It's not a huge place and I love the quirky maze of stacks with dead ends. A great place to browse during a rain shower.
