The Perfect Old School Used Bookstore

We love bookstores especially used book shops.. One of our favorite things to do on our travel is search out English language book shops (or bookstore with English offerings). The Word is our favorite so far in Montreal.

The Word is a used, English language book store located in an unassuming two-story blue building on a shady side street just off the McGill University campus. The store opened 41 years ago and operates pretty much as it did then: cash-only, no computer, and an old rotary-dial telephone. The selection concentrates on literature, history, and philosophy but with small sampling of books outside of those categories. There is a big comfy chair if you need to sample a book before deciding to buy. Prices are a terrific value. We got 7 great books for 17 dollars.

You have to look hard for the store as it's only "sign" is a "Word" t-shirt hanging in the window.

The nearest Metro station is McGill.
