From an author to a bookseller: Thanks Book City!

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.)

By the way, I'm currently busy working on my new walking guide Toronto Street Art Strolls (to be released in Spring 2017). A 4th guide! Another milestone to celebrate.

Nathalie's tips for a smooth outing

After years of doing all kinds of outings with my children, I can assure you the secret to a perfect outing lies in the details, not the destination.
