Books are humanity's constant companions, entertaining readers in airports, enriching minds of mush, and only occasionally barking at the e-mailman. Adopt some tried-and-true volumes with today's Groupon: for $9, you get $20 worth of used books at Jeannie's Used Books, located in Portsmouth.
Step through the door at Jeannie's Used Books and immediately spelunk into a tome-lined cavern of literary stalagmites. The store has an alphabetized inventory of 150,000 volumes in more than 160 categories— ask Jeannie about specific volumes among the myriad. Trade paperbacks and hardbacks are at or below half the cover price, the industry standard for used volumes. Customers looking for a specific book or genre can easily pounce on their printed prey like literature-minded lobsters, and casual book hunters and hardcore literary addicts alike can spend hours searching the towering shelves for the ideal book to keep them occupied during next month's desert-island shipwreck.
If you have ambitious plans for a personal library, need to feed a voracious brain-appetite for paperback entertainment, or just want outdated computer books to ironically prop up a 32-inch plasma-screen monitor, the gigantic tome trove at Jeannie's Used Books will crush your needs beneath delightful pages.
Not valid for local-history books or Avon products.
