Windowseat Books, BC

Windowseat Books is a cozy independent bookstore in the Old City Quarter of Nanaimo, British Columbia. The space is small but the books are mighty! Tired of working corporate, owner Andrée Bizier decided to combine some of her favourite things like reading, adventure and chaos and opened Windowseat Books in August 2018 on a whim. 5 years later, it is still the best journey she has ever undertaken. Reading is cool!!

De Stiil, Quebec

Bookseller Aude Le Dubé has lived about a thousand lives. She’s been a translator, a copywriter and a press attaché, and has penned two novels, one of which was awarded the Grand prix de l’association des écrivains bretons. Before De Stiil was a bookshop, it was a clothing store called État de Style. But when the city went into lockdown, she did what a lot of people did: question what she wanted to do with her life. Next season’s line was drawn up and about to be patterned, but her heart wasn’t in it anymore. “I felt like the world needed books more than it needed clothes.” Via Toronto Star.
