Perfect Books opened on Elgin Street in Ottawa in April of 1994. An Independent Book Shop, we have striven from the first day to be a part of the downtown community and responsive to the needs of our neighbourhood.
Although we are driven by Fiction, we seem to draw History buffs and Political readers as well. We carry the finest in Mystery writers both international and local (bet you didn't know that Ottawa was a hotbed of terrific mystery writers!). We think our Science Fiction section is without equal. You'll also find Edward Gorey lurking about, a host of Very Short Introductions (by Oxford), some delightful fine art cards by Charles Van Sandwyk and an ample YA and Children's section as well.
Watch how fast we can deliver on Special Orders! We can often get a title to you that same week, sometimes even overnight.
We're situated in the heart of Canada’s Capital, on the vibrant Elgin Street strip, just a stonesthrow from Parliament Hill, The Rideau Canal amid a plethora of coffee shops and great restaurants.
We can be contacted by phone or online, but it is always nice to drop by and get to know us. We have a varied team of booksellers. And what we all have in common is our sheer love of reading and a joy at working with books and our knowledge. Who could ask for more?
