Reading is a passion of mine. I typically have at least two books on the go at any given time – one fiction, and one non-fiction.
And I also love to support local whenever possible. Which is why I created a list of books written by Vancouver Island authors and/or books about our beautiful rock. And now I’m sharing it with you!
It’s something we book lovers can return to again and again when in need of a new read. (And at the moment we all seem to have a bit more time on our hands than usual 😉 ).
Below is a collection of my own recommendations, plus those gathered from a call-out to our website followers for local books they would recommend. So while I haven’t read every book mentioned (yet!), someone out there has and enjoyed it enough to share it with others.
If you feel a book should be added, please let me know in the comment section below (or email me). Please remember, though, we are looking for those books written by local authors and/or are about Vancouver Island.

UPDATE: As the list of exceptional books by incredibly talented local authors continues to grow, I have broken it down into two parts: Non-Fiction and Fiction. This first page showcases non-fiction books written by local authors; and/or non-fiction books about Vancouver Island; while the second page shares fiction books only.
