Lao Tzu once said, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, and a book with a thousand pages begins with a foreword by Malcolm Gladwell.” Advance toward epilogues with this Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of books, calendars, and gifts at Greenwoods' Bookshoppe.
For more than 30 years, Greenwoods' Bookshoppe–an independent bookstore for independent minds–has brought readers and literature together with an array of new releases, specialty books, and out-of-print tomes. Shoppers can careen into their new location on Whyte Avenue and dive into light-hearted material, such as Goodnight iPad ($17.50), to entertain humorous observations of modern life or glue their eyes to the pages of Death Comes to Pemberley ($32) to discover how Jane Austen’s famous characters beat the Reaper in a game of laser tag. Young readers can venture into Greenwoods’ Small World section to peruse age-appropriate titles, including Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes($18.99). Shop associates happily aid shoppers in selecting a new book with a list of staff choices or use special-order services to locate out-of-print textbooks that prove reading is impossible.
