Books….ahhh, good old books. I am an avid reader and book lover.
Is the original form of the book going out of style? I sure hope not! With the advancement of technology, we are seeing more "electronic" versions of books. These ebooks can be found online, or through libraries. I have tried reading a book on my computer and on my tablet, but my preference is to have the actual book in hand. I like the feel, weight, and smell of the book itself. I like to be able to "curl up with a good book", and take it with me wherever I go. I like to be able to put it by my bedside, and use a bookmark to mark my place. I love going into bookstores and libraries. I hope books never go away!
I live in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and here is how I get my good old fashioned books, both new and used (and a few extra resources I have come across):
Book sellers online:
Kijiji.ca (books section, check in Winnipeg or other surrounding locations)
Bookbyte.com (New and used textbooks)
To pick up books in person:
Chapters Indigo (new books)
University of Manitoba Bookstore (new books, also have a used book store)
Value Village – Instore (used books)
Children's Hospital Book Market (used books) – St. Vital Mall (3 sales yearly – Fall, Winter and Spring). http://goodbear.mb.ca/events/childrens-hospital-book-market/
Winnipeg Public Libraries
If you have any other great resources to add here, please let me know!
