The KW Bookstore at 308 King West is delightful. Brohemus is a semi-regular there, taking in everything from books to LP records and then leaving with about as much stuff by weight. They don’t have a functioning website, but if you’ve walked the DTK sidewalk in fairer weather, you will certainly have seen their inventive and smile-inducing chalk messages on the sidewalk. The place has a wonderful smell of old books that plugs directly into my crocodile brain and triggers memories of the many many hours I spent in the Point Edward and Sarnia libraries as a kid. Regular readers know I’m not an overly-sentimental guy, but in the wake of advancing technology, I will miss books the most.
At King and Water, this is Kitchener.
