Profile Last Updated: February 19, 2008
Beyond the heavy concentration of bookshops on Whyte Avenue, one can find Alhambra Books, the store for both the book collector and those who love to read. Operating since 1990, Alhambra's selection of used and collectable editions of the printed word runs the gamut from fiction to technical books, with an emphasis on history and religious studies.
What You'll Find
In the fiction section alone, the shop offers a wide selection for the eager reader, from Jean Paul Sartre and other Russian writers, to lighter, easier to digest novels and children's books. Alhambra takes pride in offering one of the most extensive and affordable collections of "how-to" books. The shop also sells vintage magazines including back copies of Life magazine. While visiting the second-floor shop, be sure to check out the "card catalogue." It features a wide selection of older and second-hand postcards, just waiting to be sent to a friend or to hang on a wall.
