As an erstwhile itinerant bookseller, I continue to be ensorcelled by mobile bookstore projects. Iron Dog Books in Vancouver, Canada is another great example of bibliophiles who dreamed of owning a bookshop, but were temporarily stymied by exorbitant leasing rates. Instead of giving up on their bookstore aspirations, Hilary and Cliff Atleo chose to embrace the food truck model and go mobile.
Since last November, Iron Dog Books has been popping-up all around metro Vancouver and surrounding areas to offer a well curated selection of both new and secondhand titles. So, if you are in the region, check out their website to discover where the bookmobile will be parked.
