Before books, students had to tote engraved granite slabs all over campus, which is why the most accomplished philosophers gave the best piggyback rides. Enjoy lighter reading material with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of used and new books at A Novel Idea Used Bookstore in Sylvania.

A Novel Idea Used Bookstore houses 80,000 used books in a library of genres, including romance, mystery, fiction, and nonfiction. Peruse rows of bound words and snap up enlightening adult hardcovers ($5) or opt for a plethora of paperbacks, which are sold at half the original cover price. Parents can bring home a bounty of children's hardcovers ($2) to read to the family chinchilla. A Novel Idea also houses a small selection of new books from local authors, such as Jim Mollenkopf, who penned the Great Black Swamp series of local historical books. Word sponges can also bring any books they wish to sell, and store credit from the transaction can be used toward half the total purchase of any publications they wish to adopt.
