Reading is a past time loved by many, and while some people may just read while on the train or bus, or every once in a while; there are some who need a book with them at all times. For those people, getting the money to buy all the books you want to read can be difficult. Until you find Basement Books. Just a short walk from Central Station. Before I discovered Basement Books, I could only buy books every so often, and I would visit libraries a lot. When I decided to step into Basement Books, I was taken into a whole new world. A world of cheap, good books.
They don't always have exactly what you're after, and they sometimes don't get new releases till after all the major stores get them, but trust me it's worth the wait. You can walk into Basement Books, just to look, but you're bound to leave with something. With books starting at just $1, if something looks interesting, but you're just not sure, you don't feel guilty buying. It was only $1 after all. For the same price of one book at a major book store, you can get 5, 6, maybe even more.
If you think they only have a limited variety of stock, think again. Crime fiction, sci-fi, romance, biographies, film, music, historical fiction, military, war, photography, art, true stories, classics, politics, humour, kids, graphic novels; Basement Books has something for everyone.
