Most people know better than to judge a book by its cover, but that hasn’t stopped publishers from plastering shirtless vampires all over underselling copies of the Farmers' Almanac. Stock up on eye-catching titles with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of books at A Reader's Corner Bookstore.

Voted Best Bookstore in 2008 by local news station WHAS-11, A Reader's Corner Bookstore earns patrons' praise with a large selection of new, used, and rare or out-of-print books. After confirming the veracity of the non-fiction texts, patrons can browse classic works of fiction or semi-autobiographical works by Hemingway and Beatrix Potter. The store's book-loving staff also stocks shelves with religious, philosophical, and Kentucky-related tomes and can special order hard-to-find selections in many categories such as biography and history. The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho ($5.50) chronicles the travels of a fictionalized boy who seeks worldly wisdom and the meaning of life, and Kristin Cashore's Graceling ($8) and Stieg Larsson's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo ($4–$6) both recount the imagined adventures of young women with a penchant for ruthlessness. In The Help, author Kathryn Stockett imagines life in Mississippi in the 1960s from various socio-economic perspectives ($6.95). Guests can preview purchases while lounging in a number of comfortable chairs and can use the free wireless Internet to draft their own novel or a postmodern critique of Goodnight Moon.

A Reader's Corner

Tim Fout doesn't know the exact number, but he estimates that there are more than 50,000 titles inside the walls of A Reader's Corner, which he runs with his wife, Judy. And they run the literary gamut from fiction classics to sci-fi, mystery, non-fiction, and a huge children's section. New and gently used titles line the shelves of the quaint store that's housed in a rehabbed house, which frequently plays host to special events such as book-signings, and children's story time, which is on the second Saturday morning of each month.
