Best Independent Bookstore

Frog Hollow Books

A monumental year over in the Hollow, as your favourite bookstore changed hands from long-time owner and bookaholic Mary Jo Anderson to fellow printed-word addict Heidi Hallett. “The last eight months have been so incredible,” says Hallett. “I just love it. It’s what I’m meant to be doing.” Behind the scenes, the Frog Hollow crew have been preparing to computerize the store’s inventory. Upfront, it’s been world-class readings with Rohinton Mistry, Margaret Atwood, Frank McCourt, Wayne Johnston, David Adam Richardson and Coast cover gal Ami McKay. Park Lane Mall, 429-3318
