#COVID613: Black Squirrel Books is sending out surprise boxes of books

By Greggory Clark on March 18, 2020

Black Squirrel Books has temporarily closed up shop in Old Ottawa South, however the Bank Street book store is offering to drop off “surprise boxes” of books for readers during the COVID-19 pandemic. New books, used books, anything you need get through self-isolation.

A Facebook post to the BSB page says you can pick a genre, any genre—or leave that choice up to the “curating whims” of their staff. “Ideal for the indecisive or promiscuous reader in your family!”

If you live downtown there’s free local delivery, or else a $10 flat rate shipping fee to anywhere in Canada.

We’re now waiting for a box to arrive… Watch this space or follow @apt613 on Instagram for an unboxing update!
