Shelf Life Books in Calgary is one of the best bookstores I have ever been in: though not a large bookstore, they had the obscure novel published eighty years ago that I was looking for, and dozens of other books of fiction and non-fiction that I had never heard of that I suddenly needed to read. I wish I could walk down the street and suddenly be in that bookstore again.
