A full bookshelf not only provides a conversation piece for guests, but also decreases the odds they'll pull out the tome that swivels the bookcase around and reveals your secret crying room. Build up your book collection with this Groupon.

a Real Bookstore

Staffers personally select the titles that line the shelves of a Real Bookstore's 20,000-square-foot facility. Each tome is carefully culled from a stock of new arrivals, featured debuts, and signed copies from guest writers. Author visits commence in the cozy event area, where the wordsmiths entertain attendees with presentations, question-and-answer sessions, and book signings where they increase their work's value without dipping the pages in gold. At Fierce Words & Stiff Drinks events, authors interact less formally with readers over wine, artisan beers, and cocktails inspired by their books.

Youngsters enjoy their own events in the 2,000-square-foot children's section. Tuesday- and Wednesday-morning story times enthrall preschoolers with tales, crafts, and snacks, and Friday-night PajamaRama story hours invite kids for a bedtime version of the same. The store’s Collage Bakery and Bar further caters to families with menu items made in-house, and adults can enjoy glasses of beer or wine at seating areas inside or outside the store.

Reviews

when you walk in you get an actual sense that one, the people in here love books and two-they have more stock in books and less "book-related items".

They know books; great author events; amazing bakery and bar; and supports the local community. Do not miss this bookstore!!

    “This is a great store with a huge children's department, cooking display, and a cute coffee shop. I love that there are hand written reviews for the books in all the departments. Sadly, stock is depleting and I'm afraid they may be closing in the near future; which will be a sad loss for our community.”

  • “I will not go back to Real Book Store because they never, never have current books. ”

  • “Wish there were more books.”
