Because I Love Bookstores: Another Story Bookshop

Another Story Bookshop - Toronto, Canada

You might think that browsing too many bookstores in one day would lead to "been there, seen that" fatigue. Not usually a problem for me when it comes to books, but when I walked into Another Story Bookshop, I quickly noticed just how standard my typical book browsing has become. There were so many titles in this bookshop that I had never seen before. I could have spent a ton of money and/or simply stayed there all day reading book descriptions, falling in and out of text, and making lists of books to read.

"Another Story Bookshop sells a broad range of literature for children, young adults and adults with a focus on themes of social justice, equity, & diversity."

This was probably my favorite bookstore of the day for both purposes of browsing and buying. I made quite a list, but ended up purchasing only one title, Beyond Guilt Trips: Mindful Travel in an Unequal World,  by Anu Taranath. I should have made a list of the books purchased by my daughters. I know they came away with some titles new to us, as well.

Would I return? This is the bookstore I would likely start with if I made a return trip to Toronto. I could station myself here for a while and easily center a reading vacation around its contents. Another Story Bookshop is a trove of heart-opening, eye-widening, passion-building books.
