July 2016 News:

July is all about our Summer Picks list. #BringYourOwnBook to the cottage, to the beach, on the plane or the train, and even to your backyard. Wherever you're going, we'll help you find the perfect summer read.

Ann Y.K. Choi, the author of Kay's Lucky Coin Variety, will be visiting us on July 14th at 3 p.m. Her bittersweet debut novel is set in the Korean community in 1980s Toronto.

Have you heard about our frequent buyer programme? It's completely free and best of all, we keep track of it for you in our computer. No cards, no hassle. Each regular priced purchase you make earns you points. When you reach $20, you can redeem your points for free books, or keep collecting.


We have a number of great reads in the store. But if you can't find what you're looking for, we are more than happy to order it in for you. If it's print, we will find it.

We are more than just novels - we have a great selection of bios, mysteries, classics, cookbooks, history, and of course, children's books! We like to have a little bit of everything at A Novel Spot.


If you can't decide what to get the avid reader in your life, we also offer gift certificates in any denomination.
