I have permanently closed the physical store but will remain an online bookstore for webstore orders and delivery (free in Peterborough in an electric car! So environmentally good too!) and pick up at Meta4 Gallery. Please see below for details. There will also be curated shelves at Meta4 for your browsing/buying pleasure.
Thank you to Bonnie, Birgitta and Jen at Meta4 for coming up with this wonderful new way of doing business!!!


Literature and Visual Arts Blend on Hunter Street


Meta4 and Hunter Street Books are pleased to announce that our two local hot spots will form a partnership in the recovery phase of the Covid-19 lock-down. Hunter Street Books and Meta4 Contemporary Craft Gallery are getting together to make sure book lovers in downtown Peterborough can still get their literary fix.

Starting June 1st, Meta4 will feature a shop-within-a-shop for in-person book browsing, creatively curated by Michelle Berry. Michelle is both owner of Hunter Street Books and author of the acclaimed "Prisoner and Chaplain," as well as many other books. Meta4 Gallery will become the place to pickup online orders.

It's a natural partnership. We have many of the same customers and we're just two doors down from the original Hunter Street Books. Meta4 Contemporary Craft Gallery features the work of over 125 Ontario artists so adding an author and neighbour into the mix was an easy decision. For more information, visit or

Covid- HOURS FOR PICK UP and the curated shelf AT META4 (164 Hunter Street West, Peterborough)
Starting May 27, 2020:

11-4pm Wednesday to Saturdays

FREE DELIVERY in Peterborough throughout the week. Please leave a message in your order as to whether you would like PICK UP or FREE DELIVERY.

At present I am selling only books that are in STOCK or ON ORDER. You can email me and I can try to order a book for you specifically, but be prepared to wait for it and for ON ORDER books as deliveries are slow and unpredictable.

 Try taking a chance on what is in stock -- there is a great selection! OVER 2200 BOOKS! (click on BROWSE -- top left -- and then click on IN STORE and/or ON ORDER) -- when deliveries do come I immediately update the webstore, so if you check back often you'll see new books all the time. Ordering the books that are in store means your delivery will be fast!

I do not have a phone anymore, so if you do need to get in touch with me, send me an email:

And leave any messages or special requests for your orders in the “NOTE” section of the webstore form.


Thank you for supporting a local business at this time and I hope I can satisfy your reading needs. My website and social media will be updated with any further changes. Hopefully, if everyone works together we can minimize the impact of Covid-19.

Thank you for all your support, 
Michelle Berry



After "Station Eleven" it's hard to believe Emily St. John Mandel could write any better. "The Glass Hotel" is breathtaking, an "ingenious, enthralling novel [that} probes the tenuous yet unbreakable bonds between people." (publishers weekly)
