And having finally listened to the interview, I'm more convinced that this is a good "next step" project to buy into.
It's just that I want to support my local bookstore as well, but there's that cost issue too...
It isn't like there are many choices left - even in Ottawa - any more. There is Octopus Books - but your best bet is still Chapters. It is Canadian and the prices are usually pretty much on par with Amazon.ca, if that's who you are trying to avoid. Chapter's/Indigo didn't have it on their website yet, but Amazon.ca is showing it at $52.
