We Are Back!

What continues to impress me about Canada is the level of reading, for what is a country of a mere 30 million. In Toronto you can find the Central library virtually across from the Yorkville Library and only a short walk from a substantial Indigo store and a specialist Japanese Foundation library. Book City and BMV where also highly visible and appealing to the bargain buyers. Reading appears healthy pastime shared by many.

The HMV store in Montreal had an interesting arrangement of the books specially selected to appeal to their clients which included; Catcher In the Rye, Zen and the Art Motorcycle Maintenance, Lovely Bone, The Bell Jar, Animal Farm, On the Road.

Interestingly we didn't see any ebook readers!
