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 $10, you get $20 worth of books and café fare at Otis & Clementine's Books and Coffee in Tantallon.

Otis & Clementine's invites adults and kids to browse more than 20,000 new and used books while pleasing their palates with coffee, tea, and sweets. Readers wander through freestanding shelves that line the walls, making typewriter calls to lure out paperbacks ($4–$8) and browsing myriad genres, including recent best sellers, classics, young adult, and non-fiction. Younger readers test page-turning skills on kids' books ($2–$5), and the bookstore's aptly named "secret shelves" invite children to peruse gift ideas for parents and caregivers, all pre-approved by adults as fitting presents for birthdays or other holidays. Between picking out reading materials, visitors can head over to the coffeehouse area to sip Just Us fair-trade, organic tea and coffee ($2), silence the demands of sweet teeth with a selection of treats from White Sails Bakery ($2 each), or ask the barista to narrate their inner monologue.

Visitors can leave baby buggies at the stroller parking area and then enter a bookstore filled with warm tones and natural light that spills across kids acting out scenes from their favourite chapters in a play area, older siblings completing puzzles, and parents challenging biography covers to staring contests. Meanwhile, patrons are free to put in requests for the staff to stock their favourite books and can sell their used tomes to the bookstore.
