“Wow. Great book shop. Highly recommended.”
Review of The Book Shop

The Book Shop
Ranked #2 of 91 things to do in Penticton
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 October 2013

As an avid reader and long-time used bookstore browser, I must say that this place is stellar. Loads of books, reasonably well organized for such a MASSIVE selection; super friendly and knowledgable staff, and great prices. Spent an hour here; could have spent the day.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

You want it. They probably have it. The staff are so friendly and eager to help. They go above and beyond helping one to locate a book. They also recommend great titles. I always find great books to read in excellent condition. Have never been disappointed.

Stepping into the Book Shop is like stepping back in time. There used to be many such shops where you could wonder for hours looking for treasures. We hope this one endures. The staff were particularly helpful and friendly. The selection is amazing. Penticton is lucky to have such a shop.

Very knowledgable staff, great pricing and surprisingly they usually can fulfill your requests, even though everything is used, they probably have it or can get it!

Ok, so I love bookstores.... and this one is probably my favourite used bookstore next to Powell's in Portland. Phenomenal selection, and great staff. What more do you need??
