If books are houses for words, then bookstores are metropolises and readers are gentle godzillas devouring books' innards. Keep spines intact with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of books at Main Street Books in St. Charles.

Named the 2010 Nickelodeon Parents’ Pick for best family-friendly bookstore in St. Louis, independently owned Main Street Books entices page-turners of all backgrounds with a range of literature, with specialties in children's books and explorations of local and Western history. Delve into a watery underworld with Kat Falls’ young adult adventure tale Dark Life ($16.99), and discover the surreal challenges of living on the sea bottom in an inflatable house. Or flee the sea for the postmodern world of Lena Haloway in Lauren Oliver’s Delirium , where love is a physical sickness that must be cured and the government dictates society’s wants and needs ($17.99). In St. Charles Then and Now ($21.99), Jessica Dreyer and Main Street Books' owner Vicki Berger Erwin lend visual context to the area's history by documenting local landscape alterations, such as the enormous climate control dome that surrounds St. Charles.

True to the spirit of an independent shop, Main Street books hosts book clubs twice a month so that bibliophiles can gather to dissect literary themes, lament movie adaptations, and barter for rare author trading cards. June’s titles for consideration include Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand by Helen Simonson and My Antonia by Willa Cather.
