Julie's PicksJulie is SUPERMAN(ager) here at The Book Keeper! There's nothing she can't do! Julie spends her down time reading nice historical fiction or juicey family dramas, always with a fuzzy kitty by her side.

Robin's PicksRobin has been here at The Book Keeper since the sixth Harry Pottter came out! Yes, that's how she measures time! Robin's a bit of an enigma...You can't say her taste in books lie here or there...they lie everywhere! Just like Baby, no one puts Robin in a corner (of the bookstore)! She can be found reading a thriller, a fantasy novel, women's fiction or a beautiful literary masterpiece! But Robin's true passion can be found in the cookbook isle. Gluten free, vegetarian, comfort foods and grilling...Robin owns them all. It's a bit of a problem. We are urging her to seek help...
Vicki's PicksVicki has been with The Book Keeper for over 6 years! This former teacher and librarian loves a good mystery or thriller! She's up to date on all the newest and best. For such a mild mannered woman, she has quite the macabre side! However, every Friday at 10:30am, she turns into one of the most animated, boisterous and hilarious of readers, as preschool children gather at her feet for Storytime in our store! Whether you are looking for baby's first book or a fantastic read aloud, Vicki knows all of the very best little kids' books out there!
Jenn's PicksJenn is our resident vegetarian and super geek! She's into the 3 "F's"...food, fitness and fantasy! She also loves historical fiction and all books classic! Jenn can be found running our teen book club here, every Third Thursday. She has two teen boys of her own and many nieces and nephews that keep her up to date on all the best and latest in YA and kids' fiction. Don't forget to ask her where she gets her incredible T-shirts!
Kendra's PicksKendra...also known as, The New Girl...is living out her fantasy of working in a bookstore! So far she loves everything about it! Talking about books, unpacking books, putting books on the shelf, calling customers about their ordered books...she can't get enough of it! On her off days she's sure to be found fostering a new litter of kittens or chumming around with one of her many sisters. Kendra loves to read kids' and YA novels, along with contemporary fiction or a heart breaking saga. Need a recommendation for a young girl? She's an expert! Seriously... she's literally surrounded by females at home!
Kennedy's PicksIf you can believe it, Kennedy has been working here longer than anyone else. Since she was a tiny, tittering, toddler in fact! Being our student employee means that you can find her in the store during summer holidays, Christmas vacation, spring break or when she comes home to visit!! Kennedy, when not in Montreal hanging out in coffee shops and conquering the world, can be found reading all of the books a growing intellectual would need. She also has excellent taste in clothes.
Camryn has also been around The Book Keeper since she was just a babe! She's all grown up now and has great recommendations for kids, teens and young adults! She is currently at school in London but can be found in the store when she comes home to do her laundry or when she can no longer stand being away from her cat, Posy. Usually Cam is reading whatever her teachers tell her she must. However, as summer nears, she will be free to read whatever she wants! I should also mention that she loves singing while driving around in her new car (that she bought herself)!
Justin is one of our newest staff members here at the store! Along with his winning personality and fabulous hair, his vast knowledge and great taste in teen books is sure to make him a great asset! Come in and seek him out when you need advice on a gift for your favourite teenager! But please keep your hands off the hair!
Malcolm has been poised and prepped since infancy to work here at The Book Keeper. As soon as he was able to walk and form complete sentences, he was messaging us to order his favourite books and new releases. Well, he's all grown up and we're so happy that he's finally here! Look to Malcolm for help in picking that perfect kids' read!
Dawn's PicksDawn...No one can recall how long she's been working at the store, or come to think of it, hiring her in the first place... Be that as it may, whenever I need a lovely read, for myself, my mother or grandmother, I look no further than Dawn's shelf. She truly has impeccable taste. She also has the best and most complete vinyl collection in four counties! And I just can't say enough about her fudge...!
