Think of as a repository of Canadian books by authors both world-renowned and up-and-coming, writing in every genre. But not just a repository: 49th Shelf is also a community of avid readers who share the books on the site by making reading lists and book recommendations. And, 49th Shelf hosts a regular blog where we highlight new and intriguing books for readers to discover. On 49th Shelf, you’ll find books you’ll never forget, meet people whose lists and reviews you’ll admire, and learn more about the authors who intrigue you.
