Betty's started getting into selling books after agreeing to hold a book launch for a local writer. She commented, "No one will sell my books" and we realized that there really were no stores in the Borderland that sold books.
We really broke into the literature market with the sales of J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. At midnight on the day of a release, we'd open up the store to get the new book in the readers hands as quickly as possible. Fans of the book loved it and so did we! Since then we’ve expanded our collection with a wide range of genres for people of all ages, which include, but are not limited to:
- Early Learning books (Ages 0-6)
- Children’s books (Ages 6-12)
- Fantasy (including the Harry Potter and Twilight series)
- How-to books
- What to Expect When You're Expecting books
- History (including WWI, WWII, Canadian and local history, and politics)
- Aviation (books ranging from float planes to military aircraft)
- Latest Works of Fiction
- First Nations Literature
- Wildlife and Nature
- Books by local authors
One area that we've especially focussed on is the early learning books for children, ages 0-6 and 6-12. We offer discounts and delivery of the learning books to educational institutions in the Borderland.
We are pleased to work with educators to find out, which books have learning value.
