About The Book Lady

Growing up, I spent my summers at my family's cottage on Cameron Lake, which my great grandfather built in the 1940s on a piece of lakefront property that he had acquired while he was working as a minister at the United Church on Colborne Street here in Fenelon Falls in the early 1930s.
My love of reading started during those summers, as we had no television at the cottage, and I would pass the time reading book after book. As a kid I shopped at the secondhand bookstore in town called The Bookfinder, and when the couple who owned it retired I would shop with Bob Burns, right here in this store. I had a pipe dream that I would buy his store and live in the apartment upstairs. Sounds just like the plot of a book, doesn't it?
When I heard that the bookstore in Fenelon Falls was up for sale back in 2016, I quit my corporate job in Calgary and jumped at the chance to have my own used bookstore in the Jewel of the Kawarthas. I moved to town and opened up shop in the spring of 2017, and I've never been happier.

I hope that this website will make it easier for you to browse available books from the comfort of your home! I’m happy to ship to you, but for people who are located a little closer to Fenelon Falls I also continue to offer a curbside pickup option, as well as porch deliveries. Please check out my Shipping Policy, or contact me directly for more information.
