Wee Book Inn - Multiple Locations: $8 for $20 Worth of Used Books at Wee Book Inn

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. Use the power of letters to thwart misguided ammo with today's Groupon: for $8, you get $20 worth of used books at the Wee Book Inn. You may redeem your Groupon at the Whyte Avenue, Stony Plain Road, Jasper Avenue, or Alberta Avenue locations.

The Wee Book Inn offers an expansive inventory of classic, contemporary, and hard-to-find used books. The selection is constantly changing, but recent available items have included Eldest by Christopher Paolini ($5), Half Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls ($16.95), and Through Black Spruce by Joseph Boyden ($9.95). Each store's shelves are stuffed with books whispering stories yet to be shared and the pains of being too tightly bound.

For nearly 40 years, the Wee Book Inn has been serving Edmonton with copious amounts of preloved pages. Having endured a fire in 1990 at the Whyte Avenue and North Side locations, the Wee Book Inn has exhibited the positive attitude and perseverance of a battery-powered toy soldier. The shops are also home to a cast of cats who can read and see through walls.

Reviews

The Wee Book Inn was voted Best Used Book Shop by readers of SEE magazine, and seven Yelpers give the Whyte Avenue location a four-star average rating:

  • I would recommend this book store to any book lover, but chances are, if you are a true book worm, you already know about Wee Book Inn, and you have already been there! – Francesca K., Yelp
  • The books are also in good condition, the store's open late, and the prices are right. – Eric B., Yelp

Wee Book Inn

Seven-feet wide, 30-feet deep. Those were the pocket-sized dimensions of the original Wee Book Inn–and the reason for its name. Established on Whyte Avenue in 1971 by Edmonton native Darwin Luxford, that first shop spawned four additional locations during the 1980s, making space for an ever-growing selection of books and media.

In December 1990, disastrous fires destroyed two Wee Book Inns, including the flagship shop on Whyte Avenue. Within two years, however, both locations were rebuilt, restocked, and back in business. Today, Wee Book's roster of shops continues to do what it's done for more than four decades: buy and sell lightly used books and media, adjusting always to keep pace with the times. Inside, visitors may run into Wee Book's cats, as well, each of who bares the name of a former professional hockey player.

Great place to hunt for books! Jasper ocation great for downtown people but hard for parking otherwise on a busy weekday!

Great selection at this iconic shop

The staff was nice and they have great books. I do like their Old Strathcona location a bit better as they have more selection and easier parking.
