The Monkey’s Paw is a book lover’s dream and certainly something you would not expect. The bookstore, which is located at 1267 Bloor St W, stocks rare books from the 20th-century.

The owner of The Monkey’s Paw, Stephen Fowler, also has an interesting way of organizing his stock. He puts the books into four different categories: the arcane, the absurd, the beautiful, and the macabre. We think the coolest thing about this bookstore is the Biblio-Mat, a vending machine that will give you a random book for only $2.
