Fodor's Review

Deep in the McGill University neighborhood, or ghetto as it's known by locals, 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.
