What's around your favourite Bookstore


Downtown_Courtyards_Stroll_horizontal_torontourbanstrolls.com_copy

Here's a list of bookstores which carry (or have carried) one or another of my four titles with description and tips on a few other places that might interest you while you're there. Bookstores are my favourite go-to destinations when I need to buy a gift. Love the sight, love the smell. May they continue to add to the pleasure of urban walks.

NOTE: That any bookstore can order a book for you if you provide them with the title and name of the author.

A new tradition at Hudson's Bay for 2016

Hudsons_Bay_Christmas_windows_2016_3_torontofunplaces.com

I went to check if the new Saks Fifth Avenue at Yonge and Queen had affected our beloved tradition of Hudson's Bay Christmas windows. The answer is... yes and no. There are still lovely tableaux with animated characters. But Santa's world has been replaced by an Enchanted Forest filled with animals, with animations in the background. Loved it! (Click on the image above to see a clip of this display.)

Not to be outdone, for its first Christmas, Saks Fifth Avenue came up with an explosion of colours in its windows featuring glam dolls in wonderfully kitsch tutus amidst whimsical garlands. Good job!

Nathalie's walk around Book City in The Beach

From an author to a bookseller: Thanks Book City!

Toronto_Urban_Strolls_2_Stroll_12_THE_BEACH_Soothing_Stroll_

Book City turned 40 on October 1st, 2016.

I loooove Book City, and not just because they've carried my guides from the beginning. Love the fun selection we can always count on in the front store, love the themed tables, love the deals, and above all, love the fact that they've been able to survive in a very competitive industry by being a strong presence in their neighbourhood.

As a gift to Book City and their customers on this special milestone, I'm posting FREE excerpts of fours walks around the four Book City stores included in Toronto Urban Strolls 2. This should give you even more excuses to visit these fantastic independent bookstores!

So here's THE BEACH Soothing Stroll (Stroll #12 in Toronto Urban Strolls 2), which you can combine with a visit to Book City at 1950 Queen Street East. (Click here for Nathalie's walk around Book City on Danforth.)

Book City turns 40 years and there's gonna be bargains!!

From an author to a bookseller: Happy Birthday Book City!

Danforth_Back_Lanes_Strolls_from_Toronto_Urban_Strolls_2_by_Nathalie_Prezeau

Book City was turning 40 this Saturday October 1st and they offered 30% off on ALL BOOKS in their four locations (fiction, non-fiction, children's books, guides, etc) all day long. Their ads must have been very effective! So many people went to check info on their website site that it crashed on the day before!

I loooove Book City, and not just because they've carried my guides from the beginning. Love the fun selection we can always count on in the front store, love the themed tables, love the deals, and above all, love the fact that they've been able to survive in a very competitive industry by being a strong presence in their neighbourhood.

As a gift to Book City and their customers, in the coming weeks I will post FREE excerpts of fours walks around the four Book City stores included in Toronto Urban Strolls 2. This should give you even more excuses to visit these fantastic independent bookstores!

So, below is my DANFORTH Back Lanes Stroll (Stroll #13 in Toronto Urban Strolls 2), which you can combine with a visit to Book City at 348 Danforth Avenue. (Posted Sept. 30, 2016)

Click here for THE BEACH Soothing Stroll (Stroll #12 in Toronto Urban Strolls 2), which you can combine with a visit to Book City at 1950 Queen Street East. (Posted Oct. 29, 2016)

By the way, my warehouse tells me that I'm down to 80 copies of the 5,000 copies I printed of Toronto Urban Strolls 2. I won't do a second edition just yet as I'm currently busy working on my new walking guide Toronto Street Art Strolls (to be released in Spring 2017). Another thing to celebrate!
