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 $25 worth of books, CDs, and more at Dunaway Books

Awarded the 2010 Best Used Book Store award by the Riverfront Times, Dunaway Books ensconces bibliophiles in a labyrinthine assortment of used and rare books and music. Bargain-book hunters traverse the store’s aisles of sorted and sub-sorted volumes for tucked-away treasures, stumbling upon a beloved classic from their childhood such as Hans Christian Andersen's Fairy Tales ($3.53) and E.B. White's Stuart Little ($8), or Shakespeare's slam poetry. The store is painstakingly arranged, placing small press and local authors up front to boost exposure and tucking children’s books beneath the mezzanine to provide a private hideaway for page turning. Shelves of CDs, such as a recording of a Beethoven violin concerto, battle the onslaught of digital music, reawakening shoppers to the pleasures of holding a prized album in hand and using it to crush the nearest MP3 player. The store’s décor is in keeping with its passionate, torch-bearing philosophy: the restroom is plastered floor to ceiling with bookmarks ranging from ticket stubs to photographs, and the basement’s expansive collection of tomes rests against time-worn, stately walls of exposed brick. A view from the mezzanine allows shoppers to drink in the sight of the written word bathing in natural light and fellow bookworms bathing in the spray of fountain pens.
