In this new age of the big box bookstore and the e-Reader an unfortunate side effect is the fall of the independent bookstore. That is why it’s great to see a place like A Novel Spot Bookshop in Etobicoke thrive thanks to book lovers.
A Novel Spot Bookshop, located inside the much adored Humbertown Shopping Center, is an independent bookstore run by book lovers for book lovers. While the e-Reader might seem handy in the hustle and bustle of the new millennium most avid book readers still prefer the touch of the real thing to the digital, present company included. There’s just something about sitting in your backyard or in front of the fireplace and cracking open a book for the first time.
So what makes A Novel Spot Bookshop so great? Well to start, it truly is a destination spot for customers as the staff truly love to read and recommend. These aren’t automated suggestions from some super computer. These are true, honest to goodness opinions and discussions from knowledgeable staff. Owner Sarah Pietroski loves it when a customer leaves the shop with a book that they recommended and that the customer will thoroughly enjoy. Her staff takes the time to find that “perfect” read for everyone who comes into the shop. If they don’t have the book you’re looking for they’ll order it in for you so long as it’s still in print.
A Novel Spot Bookshop also brings in authors to do book signings as well as hold a monthly book club. It’s events like these that make this book store part of the community. Independent Book stores are becoming more rare so it’s important to support these local shops when we can. In fact, A Novel Spot Bookshop is the only “general” independent bookshop in Toronto from Bathurst to 427. Etobicoke is truly lucky to have one so close to home.
Readers of all ages will find that perfect book at A Novel Spot Bookshop in Etobicoke. Stop by and say hello and fall in love with books all over again.
