A full bookshelf provides not only a conversation piece for guests, but also lessens the odds they'll pull out the tome that triggers the trapdoor to your Satanic shrine to Don Knotts. Build up book collections and safeguard secrets with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of books and merchandise at Cellar Stories Book Store, located downtown.
Cellar Stories has been collecting tomes, titles, and vintage collectables for more than 26 years and is currently stocked with more than 70,000 books. Newer titles peacefully co-exist with gently used books in Cellar Stories' paper paradise, including leather-bound classics such as The Sound and the Fury ($20), pulp paperbacks such as Dangerous Trade ($27), and kitschy collector’s items such as a signed copy of Blackstone's Secrets of Magic ($500). In addition to an impressive collection of modern first editions, the knowledgeable staff can point you to a notable selection of art history, architecture, poetry, children's books, and autobiographies written by famous postmaster generals.

- The store itself offers a kind of wonderful total chaos, with books practically emerging from the floorboards and falling from the ceiling. This is as it should be: alongside high shelves and leather-bound volumes, the musty disarray brings to mind that creepy bookstore from The NeverEnding Story. – Jessica Kerry, Boston Phoenix
- You need time to comb through the many shelves here and find the great book treasures waiting for you. An excellent mix of ever-changing titles at great prices. – Andrea H., Insider Pages
