Well, you wouldn't think I'm in Canada from the books I've bought

I spent quite a bit of time yesterday wandering round Chapters and Indigo bookstores in downtown Montreal. Both had large crime sections. After quite a bit of browsing I ended up buying five books. A couple at top whack hardback prices. A fairly eclectic set. None of them are written by Canadian authors. How sad is that? Will have to have another session in them at some point.

Find those Louise Penny first editions. She is a Canadian and the British or Canadian edition are hard to find in the States.

Thanks for the recommendation, Dave. I've bought the first Louise Penny book, Still Life, but not a first edition unfortunately.
