Parenting books and Telus phones

I'm looking for 2 recommendations of best place for....

1) Used parenting books. Are there any used bookstores you know that have a good parenting section? Books on midwifery, birthing, stuff by Penny Simkin, Dr. Sears, etc, not the fluffy stuff. I am a post partum doula and I'm trying to beef up my collection of recommended books to loan out to expectant parents. Due to my nerdy and environmental nature, most everything I have purchased is in ebook format. Only now am I seeing what a bad investment that was going forward lol (p.s. if you've got these types of books I'd be willing to purchase them from you)

2) Best place to get a new Telus phone/contract/signup THIS WEEKEND. So, what I mean, is I have gotten most of my phones in the past from Future Shop but I went in there today and there were temp staff that couldn't answer questions and since I'm buying an expensive phone and an expensive plan I want to feel confident in my salesperson. Any suggestions?

Thanks!!

Try Banyen - they have a used section, and also a few doors down on 4th they have Kestrel books, which is like Banyen, but used. Failing that try McLeods cuz they have everything.

Go find UBC midwifery students and ask them if they have any used books they're willing to sell?
