April 2017 News:
You may have heard that Helen is leaving the store to begin a new adventure in Alberta! Please join us on April 22 between 2 and 4 p.m. for a farewell tea in Helen's honour. Drop in to say goodbye and wish her well. 

And the week after that, come back for the annual Authors for Indies day! All day long on April 29 between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., we'll have a number of authors popping in and out to recommend books, discuss their own writing, and just hang out. We're gathering a list of exciting visitors (stay tuned for the final announcement closer to the day) and it'll be a fun day full of surprise visits.

Have you heard about our frequent buyer programme? It's completely free and best of all, we keep track of it for you in our computer. No cards, no hassle. Each regular priced purchase you make earns you points. When you reach $20, you can redeem your points for free books, or keep collecting.


We have a number of great reads in the store. But if you can't find what you're looking for, we are more than happy to order it in for you. If it's print, we will find it.

We are more than just novels - we have a great selection of bios, mysteries, classics, cookbooks, history, and of course, children's books! We like to have a little bit of everything at A Novel Spot.


If you can't decide what to get the avid reader in your life, we also offer gift certificates in any denomination.
