    I apologize if this is in the wrong place. Please move it if it is.

    I've been looking for a copy of Katia Gordeeva's book My Sergei for ages, and I'm running out of bookstores to check. Does anyone know of a bookstore in the GTA or Toronto (Canada) area that might have it? I'm willing to purchace it new or used. Thanks!

    I once saw it in a huge bookshop in Toronto that had a whole section of skating books. No idea where the shop was though, I will ask my sister if she remembers!

    Great book. Simply written but very enjoyable.

    Last time I watched the movie, I had a horrible nightmare. Fifteen years after his death, it is still incomprehensible to me.

    You might try checking at the big BMV bookstores in the city that sell both new and used books - I've seen copies of various skating books from around that period at both the BMV at Yonge & Eglinton and the location in the Annex near Bloor & Spadina.
