Greetings from Canada....
I've been exploring Victoria and thought you all might enjoy the sight of this Victoria landmark:
Russell Books is a three storey bookstore right in the city centre, on 734 Fort Street (just off Government Street). There are several of these aisles and the end ones have additional piles of books stacked on the floor - in front of the shelves, which makes browsing the bottom shelves a bit tricky. There are new books as well as secondhand ones. But most importantly, there are loads - of near every genre and interest.
It is an amazing place and strongly reminded me of the old Foyles, i.e. before they moved and tried to be all hip.
