Before books, students had to tote engraved granite slabs all over campus, which is why the most accomplished philosophers gave the best piggyback rides. Enjoy lighter reading material with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of used books, music, and movies at Mr. K’s Used Books.
Mr. K's Used Books saves previously owned books from the clutches of dusty attics and creepy crawlspaces by letting them shine again within a spacious literary athenaeum. Its scrupulous staff allows a constantly rotating cast of used books to populate the shelves only after meeting strict quality standards, ensuring no pages are torn, soiled, or riddled with plot holes. Visitors can wrap their psyche around books from a wide selection of genres (usually $1–$12) or fill their ear canals with tunes plucked from Mr. K's collection of used CDs (usually $2–$5) and vinyl records. Stock up for movie night or National Vin Diesel Frisbee day by mining through a bounteous selection of DVDs ($3–$7.95 on average). To up the value of today's Groupon, guests can also bring in their own books and receive trading credit valued at 40% of the item's estimated selling price. Click here to view trading policies.
Mr. K’s Used Books, Music, and More
At Mr. K’s Used Books, Music, and More’s five locations, funny money is the currency of choice. In exchange for bringing in good-quality books, CDs, and DVDs, customers receive store-issued dollars that they can use toward the purchase of other items. Some in-demand items, such as school textbooks, modern literature, video games, or sports almanacs from the future, may warrant a cash exchange instead. The shop’s friendly staffers, meanwhile, remain at the ready to help customers locate an item amid the many shelves, organized by genre and number of vowels in the title.
