What You'll Get
Besides being a useful replacement for a missing bed-frame leg, a stack of books also makes you look smarter and can stop a crossbow arrow if you’re being targeted by any misinformed vampire slayers. Be prepared for cases of mistaken identity with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of gently used books and a complimentary small café drink at Elgin Books and Coffee.
Elgin Books and Coffee welcomes book hunters to prowl through the stacks, whose treasure troves of gently used word nests boast more than 50,000 in-stock titles ($1.50+). Picky jacket judges can peruse a discriminatingly curated selection of well-maintained editions of fiction titles that have been printed within the past three years. In addition to feeding letter appetites a generous helping of fiction and literature, readers can also sate cravings for nonfiction tastes such as history, science, cooking, and books about how karate practitioners struggle less with chopping apart a cinderblock than a thick hardcover.
Upon harvesting an enticing crop of texts, collect a complimentary drink at the café counter, where an assortment of Colombian coffees bloom in flavors such as banana coconutty latte and raspberry mocha. Spigots spout italian sodas in flavors such as meatball mango, and baristas brew freshly made tea varietals including chai spice, jasmine, and blossom green.
