Wee Book Inn

10310 82 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T6E 1Z8

The Wee Book Inn has three locations in Edmonton and each store has a resident cat: Fleur, Fergie and Saku. This bookstore buys and sells used books, music and movies, and their selection is current and in good condition. This is my go-to choice for used fiction, and, as a bonus, the Whyte Avenue location is open seven days a week until midnight.
