Tanglewood Books opens at Vine and West Broadway


I love books. Not only do I like to read, I like the smell and feel of a book in my hands. No matter how hard I try, I just can’t seem to get behind the Kindle.

Given the number of bookstores that have closed in the neighbourhood in the last few years, sometimes I feel the only one who still buys books from the store (or CDs).

To me, the only thing better than a new book is a used book – cheaper and better for the environment. As far as used bookstores go, you can’t beat Tanglewood Books. The selection, buy back policies and staff are excellent! I am very pleased that Kits has poached this store from South Granville. The store has taken over the old Frocks location at West Broadway and Yew. I really hope this is one Kitsilano bookstore that survives.

Do you use an eReader? Tell us why or why not.

    Is this a relocation of the shop just west of Granville, or the shop a couple of blocks west of Macdonald?

    It’s at Vine, not Yew.

    Very odd ‘service’ in that place-ever since the lovely Leslie left to have a baby we’re left with the gobshite James-truly a weirdo.
