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 $12, you get $24 worth of gently used books, movies, games, and music at The Last Word.

The Last Word aims to make entertainment available to everyone with a stock of gently used and affordable merchandise, and stringent quality criteria ensures the shop's brightly colored shelves support only like-new books, scratch-free DVDs, and electronics in tip-top shape. Bibliophiles can peruse an extensive selection of bound brainfood, including nonfiction titles, page-turning paperbacks, classic and contemporary plays, and large-print novelizations of classic Saved by the Bell episodes. Zunes and iPods, each tested thoroughly before being added to the store's stock, securely slip into purchasers' tune-ready pockets. The music section spins discs ($3–$5 for most) into players at a rapid tempo, and vinyl records add a note of nostalgia to home entertainment along with VHS tapes ($1 for most). Bolster hand-eye coordination with video-game systems and games, or focus on hand-flipper coordination by clapping them together for live entertainment.

Teachers can affordably fill classroom shelves by perusing the well-stocked children's section, which is also home to a puppet theater and cozy places to curl up with a new storytelling sloth. To further assist local education, patrons who sell their used goods to the shop can choose to donate their acquired store credit to nearby schools.

The Last Word

At The Last Word, wheat-hued shelves lead in all directions, weighed down with an enormous selection of gently used books, as well as a collection of DVDs, and gaming consoles. Authors such as Cormac McCarthy and Ralph Ellison peer from racks of employee selections beneath the vinyl records that adorn the walls, and glass cases packed with trading cards glint in the sunlight. Strict quality standards govern the state of all the items. Most are 50-80% off their normal retail price despite being in good condition, and the staff makes a conscious effort to purchase a variety of quality media rather than pamphlets entitled Thee Faxe Machine is an Entirely Infuriating Devil. The shop is peppered with floral armchairs, in which patrons curl up, sip coffee, and browse book recommendations with their laptops on free WiFi.
