Welcome to River Bookshop

All great small towns need an independent bookshop. Amherstburg is no different.


Travel through our new website to see what we are all about and to see how we work to help make our community just a little better.

Fountain Pens & Inks

Whether you've used fountain pens all your life or you've never tried one before, we recommend TWSBI. They're reliable, easy to clean, and buttery smooth to write with. Not to mention, they're more sustainable than cheap ballpoints. Visit us in store to try a writing sample, or browse our options below!

We are much more than a bookshop. Learn about our history and our favourite books. Read about our Book Clubs and our Story Time. Listen to podcasts and our special book reviews. You can even attend virtual events or get the details on each event so you can attend in person.
