With Toronto back into lockdown, the store will remain closed for in-store browsing. A Novel Spot will continue to offer pickup options, either at the door or curbside—for contactless pickup, pull up beside Laura Secord and your books will be delivered to your trunk. Stay tuned for us to confirm new hours!  Sarah will be in the shop to take calls and process orders. 

Twice-a-week free delivery for orders over $50 in the M8 and M9 postal codes are still available. You can order any books you like through our online store. Please email or call us for assistance!


Please note that our website now only shows titles that are currently in-store.
 Our inventory will change daily as new book deliveries arrive and books sell out. We've made this change because we have passed our suppliers' cut-offs to guarantee that special orders arrive in time for Christmas. You're still welcome to call us and we can check on specific titles for you, just as we did in wave 1 of the pandemic in March.
