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 $15, you get $30 worth of books and gifts at mother tongue books.

An independent purveyor of tomes, mother tongue books outfits bibliophiles of all ages and interests with publications that cover a range of topics, including Canadian fiction, parenting, and psychology. Young word worms can find a definitive answer as to why Degas’s works never featured any sorceresses with a copy of Witches Don’t Do Ballet ($9.50), penned by local scribe Susan Atkinson, and novels such as Frances Itani’s Requiem ($32.99) enable readers to show off their page-turning prowess. Affirmation cards ($14.95) ensure portable positive thinking, and healthcentric volumes, including Birthing from Within ($22.95), by Pam England, help keep bodies in fine fettle. Additionally, books on political thought expand social awareness, such as Naomi Klein’s The Shock Doctrine ($22), equipped with a carefully concealed electric hand buzzer. In addition to books, the shop also features a selection of calendars, cards, beeswax candles, and Chamomile Desjardins hot sauce.
