Welcome to Pilgrim Reader


Pilgrim Reader Books is a used book store located in the village of Combermere, on the shores of the Madawaska River in the province of Ontario, Canada. We have an open shop though we are now closed due to pandemic restrictions. We are still open for all on-line purchases and inquiries. The village is located in the highlands just to the southeast of Algonquin Park, probably one of the more stunningly gorgeous and staggeringly beautiful parts of Ontario, especially in the fall.


Along with a large and varied selection of Canadiana, Polish books and books about Poland, children's and juvenile books of all sorts, general history, poetry and drama, fiction, mysteries, local history and authors (Ottawa Valley and Algonquin Provincial Park), we have an extensive inventory of Catholic books and Catholica in the store, some of which is listed on-line. Books on Catholic liturgy, theology, Canon Law, lives of saints (hagiography), prayer books, missals, devotionals, breviaries; liturgical music, parish histories, Franciscans, Cistercians or Trappists, Carmelites, and other various religious orders, missions, Christology, catechisms and catechetics, church history, Marian, the Papacy, priesthood, sacraments, preaching and homiletics, spiritual direction and pastoral writings, books for young Catholics . . . . and so much more.
