Every New Year’s Day, every book, new and used, at both Third Place Books locations is 20 percent off. It’s perfect timing: You can consider self-betterment and laze off your thunderous New Year’s Eve hangover at the same time. And when you finally start thinking about food again, the brunch at Vios, the Greek restaurant inside Ravenna Third Place Books, is excellent, too. It’s a whole new year; go ahead and pick up that sleazy sci-fi paperback AND that fancy cookbook. You’ve got time for both.
