Fodor's Review

Deep in the McGill University neighborhood, this small shop is bursting with used books (including first editions) and specializes in philosophy, poetry, and literature. The award-winning Montréal landmark shuns modern technology (including a cash register) in favor of timeless appeal. There's not even a sign, so keep your eyes peeled as you walk along Milton, though the bargain books lining the window are a good clue.
