Kestrel Books: what do users think?
bronwyn kroh: One of my favourite local book stores. Have been coming here my whole life
A Chen: Wonderful selection of books! The bookstore is bright, clean and welcoming. Will visit again😊
Alexander Lu: great selection of classics, poetry, and fine arts. love the atmosphere and the music, super chill. my new favourite used and rare book store in Vancouver
Nico Smith: All the fiction is sorted together, by author. More fantasy than sci-fi. Paperback heavy. Very helpful staff that will make suggestions.
Sarah Blackwood: Lovely bookstore and great selection. Woman working there was a delight and extremely helpful! I cannot wait to return again.
Joe A: A delightful book store
Thomas Bunbury: Probably the best bookstore in Vancouver. A beautifully curated collection. I can’t seem to walk in without walking out with a book under my arm. The owner is friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable. If you live in the area a must. If you don’t, it’s worth the trip.
McKinley Johnson: Loved stopping at Kestrel, the owner was so nice and helpful and their selection of books had a little of everything in the best way.
Jessica Kay: I got up today with the sole purpose of making the hour long trek out to Kestrel today to pick up some hard to find and long out of circulation editions of some books I had put on hold the day before. I was already excited but then, after I made my purchase, I decided to browse lol.... As per usual, I found what I was looking for and then some at this the loveliest of shops!!Thank you Ron for everything and as always, it was lovely chatting and having a bit of a laugh with you, glad we've now officially introduced ourselves! And I must say, if I hadn't remembered that I had forgotten it, my plant looked quite attractive and at home on your front counter! 😊📚
Estelle Cunningham: It was an adorable book store with a lot to choose from. It has a cozy and the books were arranged accordingly. You will find it easy to shop nice books here. The prices were reasonable and each of the books I bought was a page-turner. I would definitely shop here again for more fascinating books.
Ren Chouinard: Amazing little store with a huge variety of books at great prices!
Lorne Haveruk: Nice neighbourhood bookstore with a large variety of topics covered.
Sarah “Biancanetta” A: Cute little bookstore with older, rare, and put of print books. I wish I'd had more time to look around but my 3 year old wasn't really letting me. I shall return!
Sarah: Cozy little bookstore. The shop is organized and the shelves/sections are easy to navigate. I found a book I was looking for and would shop here again.
Conrad Wolf: An absolutely awesome bookstore with some great collections and loads of interesting (and well preserved books). At good prices, too.However, the owner (or whoever the elderly gentleman with no hair who sells the books is) has a horrible, horrible attitude. The last time this man cracked a smiled was probably in the 1960s. As long as he is there, I wont' be going back.
Russell Klassen: Bought a book off this guy
Mark Chambers: Great bookstore!
ifournier96: I love this place so much
Kris B: Kestrel Books is a used Bookstore on West 4th and Alma in Vancouver. I've been there a few times and I always purchased from them. Yesterday I went there again. The older gentleman working who's apparently the owner was extremely rude to me. I was furious. I left the books I was gonna buy and I left the store. I will probably never go there again.
Fiona Burness: One of the best book shops in Vancouver. Huge selection of quality reads, priced well. I miss the cat that used to live in the shop but this is still a destination book store.
Ketarel: Cool books, cool staff.. the world would be a better place if there were more lil bookstores like this.

Pulp Fiction Books: what do users think?
Olesia Trubnikova: Nice cozy book store with a wide selection
Sarah: Super cool place!Can tell they put effort into the atmosphere (chill, take your time looking around) and it has that nice bookstore smell.The staff there are also super helpful and nice.
daisies234: Packed full of books new and used, there are so many treasures here and I appreciate the significant Indigenous lit section where many stores have only a few books
Anna Mazurik: Unhelpful and off-putting customer service experience, sadly.
Marcus Mrau (Hard Travelin Marc): I’ve been shopping here for 8 years, and I always considered this an awesome and welcoming place, a week ago I would have told you Pulp Fiction is the best used bookstore in Van. I seriously don’t know what the deal was but a new(?) female employee with pink hair was absolutely atrocious, I couldn’t believe how rude and nasty she was. Yikes! I dunno how the heck this snarky lady landed a job here, but the owner should definitely reconsider! I dunno what else to say but will be looking for a new shop :(Would advise people wanting to shop here that despite a 1 star review you’ll probably enjoy it… unless the pink hair lady is working. If she is behind the counter I’d advise turning around and trying another time.
Princess Peach: Great little store! I found a rare book that I had been searching for a while! Also saw the owner on the news talking about how he makes it a priority to pay his employees fairly and he seems like a genuinely good person.
Jordie Yow: My favourite bookstore in Vancouver. Well curated, great used selection, good variety of new books sprinkled into their shelves as well. I always go in there when I'm passing through and have time and usually find one of two books to add to my collection. You can order books if you're looking for something specific and get a discount (this beats ordering from Amazon if you've got the time). Staff are knowledgable and talkative and can make recommendations.I will warn if you're looking to sell used books they are picky, which is a two-edged sword. On the one hand, if you're trying to sell the books need to be pristine for them to buy them so it's hard to find a home for books if you actually read it. On the other hand, when you buy a used book for them they're basically like buying new books so you can feel good about what you found and not worry about little bits of damage that might ruin the reading experience.The one thing I always find weird about the store is that they have this archaic inventory system that involves the staff writing down every purchase by hand with pen and paper. I guess it's kinda charming that they refuse to move to a computer based system, but I imagine it makes life difficult for them and probably doesn't help when there's a line.
Patrick Reynolds: Easily one of the best in Vancouver. My go to.
SK K: extremely rude service when trying to sell used books here. the moment you try to sell, the owner will start to act like an abusive customer and treat you as if you were a street beggar. never visiting this capitalist hideout again.
Joel Lucas: Nice guy at the counter, LOTS of books, found what I was looking for and some others I might come back for when I finish what I’ve got.
Arthur Swift: read the other reviews and and visit for yourself and you'll experience the rudeness of the man with glasses behind the counter. absolute jerk. some of the used books are way overpriced, Google the titles yourself before buying. I will never visit this place again
T. Hall: My favorite bookstore! Killer selection, great location... My favorite part is going to the lovely book dealer and describing in less than 5 words what I wanna read and discovering new books, authors, genres! Countless times and every time a wonderful book! Thank folks! You rock :D
John B: It's Pulp Fiction. Best bookstore in town. What more is there to say?
Allison Collingwood: Great used book store with a fairly wide selection. Large sci-fi section, as well as classics. Fair amount of aged/vintage books also.
Leif Bergrud: Great service. Fantastic selection. Friendly people.
Sam Jones: Great spot with lots of books and knowledgeable staff. Definitely worth a visit.
Soefae Chen: One of my favourite second hand book stores because of their knowledgable employees and clean interior. I have bought many books there, from used classics to new releases, all for very impressive prices. I recommend this store to everyone :)
Royan Lee: This is the best used book store I’ve ever been to. Our family had so much fun visiting!
Christina Chan: They will order any book you request and have it there within days. Awesome staff, wide selection, and a diverse graphic book section.
Sandra Wadden: Checking for old titles. Didn't find the one I want, but they can order.
George McGoogle: I used to buy books here semi-regularly, but stopped after repeated rude service from the employees of the book store.

Schedule: Opens at 1:30 PM

Telephone: +1 604-261-3812

Business type: Used book store

Lawrence Books: what do users think?
Aaron Christoff: Anyone have any idea why it's closed or when it will reopen? There should be some kind of sign. Very disappointing
Vera Williamson: It was a good book place. It was quite old too but I guess it was just the surrounding and its stocks. It can get a little bit of dark going to the corners of the store. I also like the vintage books available here and I bought a few because my friend from overseas like it so much and she really collects vintage books from other countries. I really appreciate this book store.
William Thomas: What is this freaking store!?!?I've lived here for two years and its never opened, no one's been in, and literally nothing has been disturbed inside this store for the last two years. All the books in the window are horrible faded by the sun, and I've looked into the front register but it looks like it's covered in dust and nothing's happened in here.This has literally been vexxing me for two years now. I have so many questions. It actually creeps me out quite a bit
Ivy Jiang (Ivy): I know it's closed due to Covid but if anyone knows if and when it will reopen that would be pretty cool. I always see the front light on while walking to the bus stop and it looks like a very cozy store :)
John M: Closed due to Covid. Sign on door says will reopen soon - whenever soon is. And voicemail on their tel number is full (and no recorded message saying when they will open). If you find them open, please update here. Thanks
Mani Rajaram: Anyone know if they have a contact email..that I can email from time to time..? Thanks
Blue Morris: Good selection of used books. Helpful staff.
David Stoller: Ms. Lawrence is both knowledible and helpful
Roger Lin: Really like this bookstore!
Darlene Wong: Hardly any walking room. Very crowded with books in boxes on the floor blocking shelves. Some hard to reach shelves. A book lover's dream but only if you find what you wanted. Bit dusty and musty from the smell of old books. Some very old volumes of classics if that's your thing. I only visit if I think there might be something of interest. Not a bookstore for the contemporary browser.
Nadine: It is always a pleasure to visit Lawrence books.
Jennifer May: Tons of great books, dusty, but well-organized, same owner for decades
Terri A: Come for rare finds, huge selection, and the adventure! Don't expect organization, and the fiction section is freezing in the winter-- it's part of the charm. Super helpful and knowledgeable owner. Very reasonable pricing. This place is a Vancouver gem.
Blake Rees: Eclectic and prodigious collection of printed matter. Do try to help 'staff' (one knowledgeable and thoroughly enjoyable ma'am) who has obviously 'taught' and applies Customer Service with a wry humour befitting a true biblio junkie !H. Beam Piper applauds you ...
carlos gaspar: Old school
Philipp Kundert: Huge selection
Marcus Schmaling: One of the best and last used book stores on the coast. Inside one is brought into another world. It is beautiful, if you like old books and that chocolatey, well-worn ancient smell. Love this place.
Paul Lee: It looks small but it is really big
Walker: Awesome used bookstore.
Mike Martinescu: Nice place. I sometimes go there to find old books to give as gifts, or to get a certain edition of a book. Allows trade-ins, so it's a good place to go to if you go through lots of books (like my neighbor who likes murder mysteries).
Christopher Oram: Best used book shop in town... well worth a visit if only to browse.

Telephone: +1 604-873-4778

Business type: Rare book store

First Canadian Used Books: what do users think?
Heather Eldridge: Laughed in my face when I asked after a certain genre. This bookstore will judge you on what you like to read and I'm shocked that it could still be a functioning business with that kind of gatekeeping. Not impressed
Tom Schulz: For 20 years I have loved come here. Soon like everything else I have loved it will be washed away. Mi Barrio ya no existe.
syd vong: very unpleasant experience at this store; we walked in an hour before closing time and the owner yelled at my friends and i to “stop bothering him and leave him alone.” very creepy atmosphere.EDIT: We came in and were looking at some of the books and cassettes near the entrance. The owner looked up at us and stared for a while. He then out of nowhere, said "goodnight". I, although confused, replied back "goodnight". After around 30 seconds after this response, the owner said "Just leave and stop bothering me. Get out of here. Goodnight". My friends and I left immediately. We had not initiated questions or conversations with the owner, nor had we acted recklessly or loudly in the store. We were intending to purchase, but will definitely not be visiting again.
Ruth de la Giroday: Underrated used bookstore! Called almost every bookstore in Vancouver for a certain novel. None of them had it, but this guy had 2 copies. Said he’d quickly grab it, then ring me back to confirm (before I headed over). Found so many other good, current books, & the shop owner had great suggestions for next reads.
Vera Williamson: I got curious with this store and decided to go inside to check it out. It was a nice bookstore, it was not huge or too small, it was just alright to go around and browse for interesting books. My friend likes vintage books so I bought one, since it looks too old I just hope she will like it since I shipped it to overseas.
Erin Keyo Alcock: Run by a quiet old man who mumbles, but then says he can't hear you when you say something. Lots of books, but makes one not want to try and buy something.
Barry Ekko: 没想到这么老的店会淘到这本书,里面有一些关于建筑,室内和平面的书籍,很棒的店
Ryan Trainor: Great used book store - lots of selection and the owner went out of his way to research a book I was looking for when I didn't even ask! Will definitely return!
Olga Kr: The store itself isn't so bad but a store manager started make inappropriate comments about my 13 y.o. sister's look and clothing. I totally agree with a comment made 7 year ago about this store and I DO NOT recommend teenage girls/young women to go there.
M: Great, old style used bookstore. Knowledge owner.
brashmarko: Helpful staff
Valerie Russell: I like the selection of books. I seem to always find something there.
Bradley Gagne: Good used books.
Quigley Jones: Took a pile of books to Pulp Fiction, they weren't interested in any.Brought them here and sold a third of them.
Rhiannon McGrath: Might not have what you want, but does have what you need. I was browsing and considered picking up a certain history book, but decided against it (in favour of some other books). The next day a book club randomly brought up that history book, so I ran back and grabbed it. A certain unassuming magic to the shop, to be sure
I R: Great location and selection, prices are decent. Owner is friendly and helpful, if you can't find what you're looking for, just ask him!
Amanda Cheong: Quirky and nostalgic with a kindly owner - I've found something great every time I've visited!
Terence Yee: First Canadian Used Books is a small inconspicuous store. The first thing I noticed upon entering was the strong malodorous stench of prolonged cigarette smoke. It was prevalent throughout the store, and felt like all the books are saturated by secondhand smoke residue.Shelves are half-empty; books are in quite shoddy condition—the couple I was interested in purchasing weren't too bad, but upon closer inspection their pages were dirty (stains, dust within pages), and the fore edges mildly sticky. It seems curation is quite relaxed, as I saw some old issues of Playboy among books.I suppose depending on what you're interests are you may find something you fancy, but I found nothing, and will not be revisiting First Canadian Used Books.
Helen Metcalf: Great place to find new old books to read. I always find something interesting and the staff is really helpful to locate something for you based on your interests.
Cardinal Hill: Super mellow old fellah runs this joint. I swear he lives there, he looks like part of the furniture.
Nevada: So many books! The staff is amazing as well! Will definitely be back.

Cicy G: Great used bookstore, lots to browse.
Angus: Booklovers, come here, step back in time for the traditional second-hand book store experience.If it's your first time here, and it all looks a bit confusing, just ask the super knowledgeable staff.
Matheson Murray: My favourite bookstore in Vancouver. Staff are very helpful and know where things should be. A great place to go in not knowing what you are looking for and coming out with a couple of books.
Bizou: You will find everything you came for and more
Artie Lane: Hard to imagine what they DON'T have. Very helpful, very well stocked.
Veronica Zayas: If you enjoy reading, this is your place.They have a huge amount of books from many different categories and they are second hand which makes them much cheaper and in very good conditions.You have to look a little if you want to find anything in particular but you´ll enjoy looking around and can find so many things.
stephen wilde: wonder the isles. step over the piles. even if you’re not looking for a book and just want one of the best visual historic vancouver (not yet torn down made into cheap/expensive condos) experiences, you will find a book to purchase!!!
Geoff DeLuca: So many books! Go there if you like looking thru piles of books for used hard to find books. Helpful staff, good location.
Kris Toijonen: Friendly service, and a wide selection of most everything!
SN: Excellent selection and friendly staff. Prices for newer releases were decent (not cheap, but fair considering recency + condition). Will be returning soon!
Reggie Johnson: Incredibly rude staff
Karena Lindstrom: Very cool used bookstore, literally filled to the brim with books on many topics. There was a wide selection of old, hardcover titles. The staff were friendly and helpful for locating areas within the shop on a certain topic/genre.
Eric Saczuk: A true literary treasure trove...if you can look past the disorganized mess. Super helpful staff who seem to know everything about each book you pick up.
Gregory Devine: Everything you want a bookstore to be. Every time I'm in Vancouver, I visit.
Alessandro Monetti: Complete chaos. Piles of books everywhere making it hard to move around the store (someone knocked down piles simply by turning around). Labels on shelves don’t always match what’s on there. I’m sure there are plenty of great titles, but way too disorganized for my taste.
Henry Chen: A true treasure in the city. Mountains of books here, you can find lots of interesting/unique ones. A perfect spot to spend some down time here!
Robert Cromagnon: Books, books, and more books! Books on shelves, books in piles, books in the window.....and staff who know exactly where to point you. The trouble is every time I pop in looking for one specific book I usually walk out with three or four more. A bibliophile's paradise!
Aaddmd Desai: AmazingStore
Turtles and Peace Photography: I went to Macleod’s Books to sell some of my collection. They have an incredible store with lots to choose from! The store was busy, the staff were busy, but I was greeted and dealt with quickly and respectfully! I got a fair price for my books and the ones that they didn’t buy, they said it’s because they won’t sell well. I highly recommend Macleod’s Books for buying or selling!
Julian Worker: An excellent secondhand bookshop with many different sections to choose from. There's been a bit of a tidy up recently and there aren't quite as many books on the floor as there used to be but the choice is still overwhelming and you'll probably end up buying a book you didn't come into the store to buy.
Tatyana A: It's an interesting bookstore, with very proactive staff, but I would not recommend going if you have anxiety. I was visiting from out of town and wanted to stop in as soon as I saw it! I went right to the desk to ask where to find culinary books, and they directed us right to it. But as I was looking around, I went to take a picture and was told off in an unnecessarily stern manner. They spoke to me as if I willfully ignored their no photography policy, but I only saw the sign after they mentioned it, as they were both by the entrance and very easy to miss amongst all the books. I apologized profusely, and repeatedly, as well as deleted the photo. But I had to spend the rest of the visit just trying to quell my anxiety rather than enjoy the store.

Will Bkly: Good selection of new and used books
Kristen Rexin: Very pretentious and belittling when I brought in some books to sell. Will never shop here.
Aella Lee: Good selection, and good service, friendly staff.
Ace Joy: Staff was so helpful . They have a really good collection of books
Jamie Togher: Solid selection of comic books and other books.The guy working there is very knowledgeable about all the products they sell m
Stu Watson: What a great store. Smart, diverse, current selections. Used are neatly and lovingly sorted by genre and shelved to be found. Much about Vancouver put smiles on these visitors' (from Oregon, USA) faces, but Main Street store was my favorite discovery.
taylor brown: Great location great prices nice and helpful staff, really well organized, great selection.
Max Weselowski: One of the best bookstores in Vancouver.
Malika A: Convenient location, and a great selection of books. My partner and I stopped by here to do some quick browsing, and we found so many excellent options. Ranging from classics to poetry to popular releases, there’s truly something for everyone. I’m glad that despite being a used book store, all the books were in great condition. It felt like buying a new book, but only half the price. If I were to give you any advice, don’t come in looking for one specific book, because they get items in limited quantities. Instead opt for browsing and you’ll probably find a book you want, but haven’t found anywhere else.
Patrick S McDonald: Nice variety and very friendly staff!
Donika Bacoka: Super friendly staff and the selection is great, often changing with new books coming and going.
Eric Durham: Kind staff helped me find books for my four year old while I was there to pick up “Love is Not Pie” by Katherine Lazaruk
William Ma: Friendly staff...... has street parking infront of the store.
Mitch B.: Truly a holy site. Take a pilgrimage whenever you can.
Shakira G: Unfortunately I didn’t find what I was looking for but the staff was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about where else I could try.
Steph Y: Very friendly and polite staff
Nazanin Eslami: Great selection, a mixture of new and used
Kali-olt Sedgemore: They have such a great selection of new and used books. The staff are super friendly and always willing to help find a book your seeking. The prices are reasonable for new books and cheap for used. They have a lot of old fiction novels that are hard to find and they also have a great Indigenous section that seems to be updated weekly with new indigenous books
Evan van Niekerk: One of your employees, a heavy set man, verbally harassed my, senior citizen, father for using the washroom (which was open) while purchasing books from you today. I won’t be back and I will let my network know not to support you any longer.
Brett/Ivana Friesen/Klhufkova: Well organized environment with a very friendly atmosphere, found some real treasures. A happy place for a book lover.
105 Hikes: BC Trail Guides by Stephen Hui: Excellent bookstore with a fine selection.

Tanglewood Books: what do users think?
Nico Smith: Holy cow, what a fantastic neighborhood book shop. Strong science fiction offering, with numerous hardbacks stacked on the top shelves. Be careful when sliding out the hardbacks! Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Fair prices.
Robert Cromagnon: I don't get out to this store near enough but when I do I never walk away empty-handed. I especially love the narrow aisles with books on either side. Definitely not a place you want to just "pop in for a second".
Rory Mills: Awesome aesthetic - update though, please remove transphobic book “Irreversible Damage” from front window.
Miranda Maslany: I called to inquire about a book and they got back to me very quickly and were very lovely!
Jacqueline James: It was a unique book shopping experience for me because I found the store on my way to visit a friend and I got so curious so I came inside and to my surprise, it was a nice book place filled with many impressive books. You can freely browse each book, which I found amazing.
Estelle Cunningham: It was a classic book shopping. I love their interior, it is like being inside a good antique store. You would definitely like this store even from the outside. The ambiance was nice, it not dusty but was so clean and everything is organized. I had a nice time shopping interesting books here.
Ava Hall: I really like this store!! The ambiance is great, prices are good, I believe there's a chandelier which is so sick, and the employees are nice and very interesting!! Great store, I love buying books here :)
Trey Schober: Great selection, nice staff, and you can trade in your old books.
Justin Le Herissier: Great local bookstore, worth a browse if you're in the area. If you make a purchase you can start indulging at a cool coffee shop right next door!
Marten W: Ah yes, I think this is the place where the 2 love birds first met in the movie First Love.
Nadim S: Nice brick and mortar place with real books in wooden bookshelves and a gorgeous booksmell to boot. Oh and there's the perennial Murakami!
Marina Ribatto: Great selection of classic books as well as other genres ; friendly staff relaxed atmosphere no pressure sales free to browse , great place for those that love books
Lloyd McKnight: Tidy and we'll organized
Paisley D: Great prices, good selection (at least for what I was looking for) and super friendly/knowledgable staff. Definitely adding to my list of favorite Vancouver bookstores.
Svea Poulsen (Sveava): Lovely little shop with great pricing. They don't usually have indigenous art books but a great selection of everything else.
Cecilia Yu: this is my new favourite book store, the owner is very nice and knows a lot about all the books. very friendly and peaceful atmosphere. me and my friend went today and found so many books. there is a book for everyone. they have brand new books, as well as used books for great prices, usually half off. I ended up buying six books, some brand new, and the total was only 50 dollars.
Tarun Maitra: Great book store. Really knowledgeable and interesting staff. The last time I was there, the owner bought cookies from two kids selling chocolate for charity. He also ordered a new book for me that ended up cheaper than the local chain. Go there, buy a book, and then read it at the coffee shop next door.
J M: Cute little store.. great collection of books..
Emma Gagnon: Absolutely the cutest little book shop ever. Letting you live your fantasy bookstore dreams.
Andrew R: Dropped by one sunny October day in search of a gift for my mother. While they didn't have the book I was looking for, they placed an affordable order for it in no time. Great customer service and a cozy atmosphere that makes Kitsilano and West Broadway a better place.
Joel Chico: One of my favourite book nooks in Vancouver! Wide selection of books from many genres, a bit of an exisite mystery every time you go, as you'll never know what you'll end up leaving home with! Duncan and Alan are great people to talk to about whatever book you're into or looking for!

i trasgu: This shop is is magical, it has what everyone needs.
Christopher J: My first experience today was wonderful! I made an appointment and brought in a bunch of very used books. I got enough back to buy a new book! They only take what they know they can sell, so most of mine weren't usable because of the genre (eg old leadership textbooks), so I just recycled them at the eco center on the way home.Hot tip: they're especially looking for mystery and classics.Big long aisles with lots to enjoy, some real gems! They've got a bookshelf with super discounted books too. A couple chairs for reading. Books arranged by topic/genre. The employees were very helpful, and one (James) recommended me a book which was perfect!I wanted to order in a book, and I was shocked to find out they could do it for cheaper than I could find online!Beautiful journals, some neat kid stuff, relaxed vibe.So thankful to have found this place!
M: The selection is amazing , the prices are amazing and the service is (what's the word for better than) amazing ! Companion Books is... :)
Brian J: I brought more than ten books to the store this afternoon and told the lady at the counter that I would give those books to them. The lady said that she need to talk to her manager to see if they can take them in. I said it's ok if they don't want them , I can give them to the salvation army thrift store across the street. Those are very good chess books. Then she checked and kept them. She was acting like I was dumping some trash there and even din't say thank you. I was trying to support a small community store although I don't live in the neighborhood. I wish I didn't go there today and I will not.
Anson Li: This is a very well organized bookstore. This place has TTRPG.
A W: Lots of fiction selection. Not cheap. Used books cost the same as new so you need to be looking for old books that are no longer in print
Hannah Babki: The books are always in great condition, there are new finds every time you stop in, and the staff is just fantastic. So friendly and always have recommendations, ready to help. Companion Books is an integral part of the community feel in Burnaby Heights
Angela Tsangaris: In 2021 I requested a book that they didnt have in stock and asked if I would like to be added to their wait listI appreciated the offer as it is a very classy service to provide in any businessHere we are 2023 and they called with the book! Seriously amazing customer serviceSpeaks so loudly about the level of integrity and attention their customers receive no matter what year it is! Thank you!business that s
simranjeet kaur: A brilliant experience. The store people are so nice .
Jed Anderson: Great classics section and friendly staff.
Tanisha Bamforth: This is my go-to place for used books. They have a large selection and staff, especially the manager James are extremely Knowledgeable and helpful. I love that they take wish lists and will notify me if something from my list comes in! The only downside is when it comes to trade-in/buy back. I brought in 7 books yesterday, some of which I know are very popular titles/authors and was only given $14 total, so that’s $2 a book….. seems very low considering I know they’ll price them at $9-$12 re-sale. I’ll probably start selling my books privately instead of bringing them in here since I’m not fairly compensated. It won’t stop me from coming here to buy books though.
Sat Van: My book-lover friends and I love this shop. The staff are friendly, kind and absolutely book specialists!!
David Ames: Amounts offerreed.for trade are pure exploitation..
Demian Mcrae: Amazingly knowledgeable staff. You could start up a conversation probably about any author or subject and find that they have recommendations for you. I am a sci fi/fantasty fan, and they have a lot of that, but their overall selection is great. I have also sold a lot of books to them over the years, they also welcome browsing.
Michael Hansen: Great place
Susan T: James is friendly.
Danielle Villalobos: Wonderful selection and awesome staff. Highly recommend!!
Tsugumi Watanabe: This is a wonderful book store.I can spend hours (and $$$) here.I was glad that the gentleman ( maybe the owner of the store) knew who O' Henry was, and he said that he was one of the greatest short story writers.He knows books!
Kelsi Proulx: Fantastic selection, very well organized and clean, and great staff. My new favorite bookstore!
Derek Jay: I was able to order 2 books from the author Brad Yung. Great local bookstores.
Orion Irvine: Great independent bookstore. Very friendly staff

Chris 778: So sad. Closing today. All saints and souls day.
Azeem Farooqui: I saw the sign board of Albion Books 32 years ago in the background of the movie 'Shoot to Kill', same board, same writing..
Jacqueline James: It was a small book store so don't expect too much but I found lots of interesting books here so I'm giving it 5 stars since my priority here is finding nice books. You can freely browse the books here and even enjoy a short read to one of their books.
Michelle Allan: Wonderful shop. The owner is very kind and helpful.
Julian Worker: There is a good selection of secondhand books at this store on Richards Street. There are probably more books than at nearby Paperhound but less books than at Macleods. However the books are easier to find at Paperhound and better sorted.

JODI: Ty 4 leaving out my sonic youth cd 3
Dhwani: I like this bookstore a lot. The cashier was so helpful and friendly. I asked for one book and within a second he handover that book to me. Overall the bookstore was managed properly and it was easily to find the books over there in a kind of reasonable price. I must recommend this store.

Richard COOPER: Nice staff
Aleksandar Jugovic: Favourite bookshop in BC. If you are looking to lose 4 hours out of your day and not know where they went. This is your place! It is also a treasure trove of lost information, serendipitous discoveries and as they say here in Vancouver, subaltern histories.The amount of hidden treasures and rare titles is what attracts me the most to this shop.I love the people who work there, and the owner of the book shop is a walking encyclopedia!!! He's brilliant!!
Goat Eggs: This shop is amazing. If you got attitude from the owner you probably deserved it.
Colm Nolan: Great experience today. Thanks!
Kalin Roads: Fantastic selection, great prices and a very friendly and knowledgeable owner.
P Hudson: David was great! He recommended a book and also gave me directions so I got to enjoy Vancouver during a stopover! Blessed
