Welcome to Western Sky Books!

Hello! Welcome to our virtual bookstore! We are very excited to launch our store and to start selling books to you!

Today, May 8th, is our first day of business for the online store.  Opening this store has been our dream for a very long time. We love books, we love reading, we love other people that love books! We are so looking forward to being the place you come to when you want to find that special book, the one you’ve been searching for, and where you come to meet other readers,  a favourite writer or a new one,  and of course, where you come to discuss books and literature, our culture and community.

So click that Browse Now button, have a look around, stay awhile. We’re adding ‘new to us’ used books to the site every day, so be sure to check back often. If you can’t find a book you are looking for, email us at and we will do everything we can to find it and get it to you.
