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 new and gently used books, movies, and toys at BookWorms in Pinehurst.
At BookWorms, a bookstore that Community Impact Newspaper praised as having a “relaxed atmosphere” populated by “nearly 40,000 new and used books,” readers find hours of entertainment. Guests can lounge on a leather armchair or couch while flipping through the pages of a paperback ($2.99–$6.99) or translating a hardcover entirely into Pig Latin. A large children’s section greets visitors with a plush dragon perched atop offerings of colorful picture books ($1.99+), toys, and puppets. The friendly staff happily aids customers in finding DVDs ($5.99), recommending murder mysteries, and showing which text’s spine pulls out to reveal steps down into a secret dungeon.
