Lit Bliss

By Linda Tancs

British Columbia is known for many things—stately and quite lovely cities (like Vancouver, Victoria and Whistler), whale watching, totem poles, world-renowned gardens, skiing and fine dining—but a literary haven?  Yes, add that to the list and head on over to Sidney, a seaside town accessible by ferry about 20 miles from Victoria, B.C.’s capital city.  There you’ll find Canada’s only booktown, a moniker denoting a locale with a large number of second-hand or antiquarian book shops.  In Sidney, you’ll probably be no more than 10 paces away from a bookstore in any direction.  Bookworm heaven.
