My love of books started young. My mum took me to the reading club at the library where I could pick out new picture books each week to bring home when I was in elementary school. Then I started going with my mum and searching for chapter books and cooking books and anything else my heart desired (which usually included interior decorating books, sewing books, knitting books and many many many more).
I don’t remember the first time I went into Best Choice Books is on Waddington Road in Nanaimo, because it seems like it has always been there. There must have been a first time though and it must have been an awesome experience like all the other times I have been in there since. Best Choice Books is owned by Cathy and Rob, two lovely people who always have a smile for you and an interest in your day. They serve Coffee and treats as well as some lunch items, and I always get a coffee to enjoy while I browse the stacks.
Okay, the stacks. Stacks and stacks and stacks. It’s amazing. The store is layed out with the cafe in the front, and then subsequent rooms of books. There are books stacked on the floor, on the shelves, up to the ceiling and beyond. Everywhere I look there are books that I want to take home with me, and cute alcoves with different genres. I assure you that when you come here you will find more than one book that you will want to curl up with and read all day.
Another awesome thing about Best Choice Books is their Trade and Save program which encourages people to bring their books that the no longer want into the shop. So if you have any books that are just taking up space in your home, bring them to Cathy!
