In medieval times, books were read only once for fear that a second reading would disrupt the humors of the body, turning the re-reader into an educated block of granite. Enjoy society's evolving attitudes toward discarded tomes with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of used books at Dog-Eared Pages Used Books.
Dog-Eared Pages gives a second life to books that appeared on their doorstep wrapped in a picnic basket during a rainstorm. The store boasts a stock of thousands of titles, with a computerized system allowing for quick navigation of the lengthy list of literature, spanning a variety of genres from cookbooks to true crime. Bring home the creepiness of a mall Santa in book form with Mistletoe & Mayhem: Horrific Tales for the Holidays ($7.90), or identify the avian lifeform that's taken up residence in your microwave with 50 Common Birds of the Southwest ($7.95). Cult-fiction lovers can opt for little-read works such as The Da Vinci Code ($3.15) or The Lovely Bones ($7.50), while Sunday-school teachers can give students much-needed life lessons with Charles Barkley's inspirational I May Be Wrong but I Doubt It ($7). Though you can peruse the cyber bookshelves online, your Groupon is only good toward books on physical shelves, in-store.
Dog-Eared Pages also offers more than 4,000 rare and collectible books, ideal for filling out incomplete collections or giving bathrooms that wonderful "old book smell." Drop by Dog-Eared Page Used Books to seek slightly used copies of your new favorite books.
