Did you get a new ereading device over the holidays? Seems like almost everyone we know did! Ergo, we've decided to have an ebook sale that will help you fill up your ereader (whether it be brand, spankin' new or lovingly covered with old flecks of food from years of use).

Congratulations, Margaret Christakos (Multitudes), David O'Meara (A Pretty Sight) and David Seymour (For Display Purposes Only)! Our amazing three poets have all been nominated for a ReLit Award in the category of Poetry.

Our warmest congratulations to Jocelyne Saucier and Rhonda Mullins: And the Birds Rained Down has been longlisted for the next installment of Canada Reads

Together at last! We're pairing acclaimed poet Lisa Robertson’s Cinema of the Present with a stunning Cinema poster set designed by Canadian artist duo Hadley+Maxwell, created in response to the long poem and Robertson's interrogation of the pronoun 'you.' 

Eight posters and one engrossing book of poetry for only $45 (that's a savings of over $20!). It’s time to lock this deal down.


If you're not afraid of PayPal, and you want to buy someone you love books by proxy, this is the Coach House feature for you!

Like a torrid love affair, reading a fantastic book of poetry can feel all too fleeting. Fortunately, nobody will judge you if you take home three books of poetry at once, like, say, Ken Babstock's On Malice (who doesn't like a hint of danger?), Jeramy Dodds's The Poetic Edda (troll fetish fulfillment) and Sarah Dowling's DOWN (for sonically dense poetry to cuddle with afterward). During December, you can choose any three books of Coach House poetry for only $40!

Now this is a threesome that we can get behind.

For the month of December 2014, we're letting you pick 3 Exploded Views books for $30. Whether you want to take a closer look at the world of comics or a culture consumed by Eggs Benedict, reflect on Teenage Head's quest for punk rock success or the too-short life of Toronto artist and civic hero Will Munro, or consider the curation craze or modern spectres of the Panopticon, the current titles will appeal to your diverse and discerning cultural tastes.

The Exploded Views Commitment makes a great gift for a friend or loved one, but if you'd rather keep them all for yourself, we promise not to tell. 


Books wrapped in press sheets and tied up with string.

Happy onslaught of holiday CHeer, CH-ers!

Regardless of what you'll be celebrating this month — CHristmas, Festivus, Hanukkah, Kwaanza, time off from work, Ricky Martin's birthday — there is one thing we all have in common: everyone is expected to spend money. So heck, we thought we'd get into the holiday $pirit with some pretty sweet holiday deals:

bpNichol bless us, every one!

We could not be more thrilled for Sina Queyras: for her stunning new collection, MxTshe has been awarded the A.M. Klein Prize for Poetry!

The announcement was made on Tuesday, November 18, during the QWF Literary Awards ceremony. We're so happy for you, Sina! Champagne!

Can we get a 'HECK YES' for David O'Meara

The City of Ottawa announced on November 12 that for his stunning book of poetry, A Pretty Sighthe had won the 2014 Archibald Lampman Award and the Ottawa Book Award in the English fiction category. Congrats, David!
