Lao Tzu once said, "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, and a book with a thousand pages begins with a foreword by Malcolm Gladwell." Advance toward epilogues with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of new and used books at The Book House.

Filling three floors of a Victorian home constructed in 1863, the nooks and crannies of The Book House are packed with an extensive selection of more than 350,000 new, used, rare, and out-of-print titles. Its bound stories cover an eclectic selection ranging from dense philosophical treatises and extensive historical tomes to science-fiction epics and strategy guides for Duck, Duck, Goose. A collection of staff picks includes editions of Kathryn Stockett's bestselling novel The Help ($16), George R.R. Martin's A Dance with Dragons ($35), and Kenneth Slawenski's J.D. Salinger: A Life ($27), whose pages eagerly await loving hands to dog-ear their pages.

Shoppers descend a winding staircase to the downstairs level—affectionately deemed The Dungeon—which is stocked with bargain reads and comfy throw pillows stuffed with feathers plucked from Shakespeare's quills. Blake, The Book House’s designated feline greeter, patrols the cozy environs, warning of spectral appearances in the purportedly haunted shop. Committed to enhancing its community, The Book House donates a portion of all its proceeds to the Foster & Adoptive Care Coalition and the Second Chapter Life Center.

The Book House

The Book House is a family-owned and operated book store that's been a local favorite since it first opened in 1986. Culled from hundreds of collections, auctions, suppliers, and rogue librarians in the past 30 years, the books range from new to rare to out of print, covering any subject from history and philosophy to graphic novels and children's books. While The Book House has a passion for giving older books a second life, over 50% of their collection is comprised of new and frontlist titles, as well as greeting cards, gifts, blank journals, and coloring books. The shop also hosts a variety of events, including book signings, open mic nights, and other events featuring authors, artists, and musicians.

Great selection of used books. I used the option of ordering online and picking up my selections. It was a wonderful time-saver and I appreciate them having that service.
