What You'll Get
Besides being a useful replacement for a missing bed frame leg, a stack of books also makes you look smarter, and can stop a crossbow arrow if you're being targeted by any misinformed vampire slayers. Discover the benefits of books with today's Groupon: for $5, you get a one-year booklovers membership (a $25 value) at R.J. Julia Independent Booksellers in Madison. For more than 20 years, R.J. Julia has been equipping readers with written words through book sales and regularly held literary events. With a yearly membership, readers get 10% off every book purchase, two annual storewide sales at a 20% discount, and e-mail bulletins.

Stop by to peruse staff recommendations or stare longingly into a drink in their onsite café.
