About Us

Terrier Books is an independent online bookstore, which sells books with an eco-conscious mindset. We specialize in Picture Books for children, but we also carry baby books, teens, young adults and adults as well.

Our goal is to provide people with affordable books that have a positive impact on the planet.

Terrier Books's stock vary from brand-new secondhand books to remainered books (overstock not wanted from publishers and who have small marking on the side of the book).

Because of that, our collection also include exclusive and unique books.

We are located in Sooke, on beautiful Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada, also known as the unceded traditionnal territory of the T'Sou-ke First Nation.


Also, behind the books… there’s a girl with a passion for books & people.

My name is Gladys and I'm the person behind Terrier Books.

I grew up on a small island called Martinique, in the French West Indies.
In 2011, I moved to Montreal, Quebec to study, and after ten years of cold winter months, I switched islands for Vancouver Island, on the West Coast of Canada.

Back in 2016, I realized that my dream job would need to include books and customer service. So, during the 2020 pandemic, I just started collecting books with the goal of having my own bookstore someday.
Today, that dream finally became true with Terrier Books, my online bookstore, which hopefully someday will elvolve into a brick-and-mortar store.
