I have always loved books. My mom had to drive out of our little town to buy me cases of used books. Later I moved to Montreal. Oh dear Montreal with amazing second hand book stores, many libraries and a GIANT library. I was in heaven.
I got a job at l’Echange on Mont-Royal street. L’Echange was and still is a great used books and CD’s store. Famous singers, actors and writers were customers but my favorite regulars were the passionate ones.They were sharing their highlights, their new treasures and they influenced my life. My roommates were librarians, all the walls were covered with books. I remember the lovely smell and my dad’s face every July 1st (Quebec’s unofficial national moving day). The good old days!
