A full bookshelf provides not only a conversation piece for guests, but also lessens the odds they'll pull out the tome that triggers the trapdoor to your Satanic shrine to Don Knotts. Build up book collections and safeguard secrets with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of books and more at Russo's Books, located in the Marketplace Shopping Center, just south of California State University's Bakersfield campus.
The family-owned Russo's Books has fed text-hungry residents with tasty volumes and savory selections for more than two decades. Each organized shelf greets readers bedecked with varied titles. Parse through Stieg Larsson's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo ($7.59) or James Patterson's Private ($26.59 for hardcover) for spine-tingling spine-bounds, or discover local page-turning prosematicians such as Gerald Haslam and Kat Martin. Russo's Youth Advisory Council taps a fertile well of young pundits from Bakersfield-area schools to carefully select the finest youth literature, and Russo's warm, helpful staff is quick to offer any recommendations.
A multitude of in-store events takes place each month inside Russo's Books' cozy digs, including presentations, book signings, children's storytime, and discussion groups. In addition to the wide array of readables, Russo's stocks a collection of sports memorabilia and trading cards for purchase. Stop reading between the lines on the highway and instead opt for words that aren't flying by at 55 mph with Russo's Books.
