Local Montreal bookstores have always blessed us with a wide range of authors and topics, and some are continuing to do so during this difficult time.\nSee which bookstores are offering delivery services around the city below!\nVisit MTLBlog for more headlines.\nThe thought of living without a book can be just as damaging as the threat your internet may up and die in the next few weeks. Yes, that devastating. Books are an escape game, just with pages. While you can always order your books online from one of the giants, if you want to support local Montreal bookstores, there are still some that you can order from and help put some money back into our economy.\nAnd on that evergrowing list of things to do if we had more time, isn't read more usually right there next to do a pushup or stop ordering Jalapeno poppers for all three meals?\nSince the brick and mortar bookstores are on shutdown for the next while, there are still some bookshops that are taking orders online, by text, and email and will have the books shipped right to your door.\nThe shops vary in genre specialties, French and English languages, and between new and used; but all are independently owned. And if you need a little excitement in your life, check out The Word's Bookbox surprises.\nHere are four Montreal bookshops to check out if you want a little library delivered right to your doorstep.\nWord Bookstore\nView this post on Instagram #bookpeople #bookpeopleunite #humansofbookstagram Photo by @marilynebertrand A post shared by The Word Bookstore Mtl.

The website isn't set up for online purchases, so call or text them directly for your must-read.\nPhone: 514-264-1638Email: firstname.lastname@example.org\nWebsite!\nREAD ALSO: A Tweet About Montreal Summer Is Going Viral & It's Something We Need To Hear Right Now\nLibrairie Drawn & Quarterly\nView this post on Instagram Hi everyone, Please be advised that we have closed our bookstores to the public and we’ve moved all of our sales online. In times like these, browsing for books in a physical space (as much as it is beautiful and nothing beats it) isn’t the safe choice for our staff or our community at large. Our website is now offering online sales via Bookmanager or Les Libraires. You can also support our bookstore directly by purchasing audiobooks via our page on Libro.fm. We’ll be shipping books or you can pick up your prepaid books just outside of our children’s store (176 Bernard West). We have a secure spot to avoid all contact and we ask that customers stay at least 2 meters away from each other while fetching your books. You can browse and order books from both of our stores’ inventories, but pick up will be via mail or happen exclusively at La Petite Librairie D+Q, our children’s location. Staff will be on site at our Children’s location from noon-5pm daily to help facilitate shipments and pickups. Please call (514-279-2279) or email (email@example.com) with your ETA and we’ll make sure the package is wrapped with your name on it and ready in between the doors for you when you stop by. Much love and care to everyone! A great big virtual hug to you all! ❤️❤️❤️ A post shared by La Petite Librairie D+Q (@petitedrawnandquarterly) on Mar 17, 2020 at 11:59am PDT\nYou can purchase books on the website of the rather famous Librairie D & Q. If you're looking for book recommendations they are still there to help by phone or email.\nBuilt on the idea of community, this shop is also offering online book clubs and more ideas that are worth checking out.\nWebsite!\nArgo Bookshop\nView this post on Instagram New arrivals time!
