About Augustine Funnell Books
We offer a diverse selection of hardcover and paperback books (and a few digests/pulps/magazines) in a wide variety of categories. Every effort is made to accurately describe and grade books, with the general tendency toward conservatism. In fact, Fine--or, sometimes, As New--is our highest grade, and it's down from there. "Mint" is a word referring to a delightful flavour or an imposing edifice where coins are produced. It may be acceptable where baseball cards or comic books or coins and the like are concerned, but it is a lie and has no place in the terminology and protocols of the book world. No place whatsoever. None. Zero. No matter what certain self-styled booksellers of the Internet generation might think.
For those who are actually close enough to visit the store, whether through wisely choosing to live in the Fredericton area or equally wisely opting to make it a travel destination, our storefront hours of operation are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday/Wednesday/Saturday; 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday/Friday; and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday. The store is closed on Mondays, giving staff members an opportunity to find their clothes and sober up after whatever bookish shenanigans they got up to on Sunday evening.
