Hey, fellow Gen X-ers, here’s a way to get 40 percent off at Paperbacks Plus in Mesquite.

In celebration of the bookshop’s 40th anniversary, anyone born in 1973 or ’74 can receive 40 percent off the purchase of as many as 10 items through June 24.

Born in some less glamorous year? Don’t want to be reminded that Mesquite exists? Anyone can get a 10-percent discount at sister location Lucky Dog Books at 633 W. Davis during the anniversary celebration.

Lucky Dog also is offering a gift to every customer every day through June 24. Follow the Oak Cliff store on Facebook to find out in advance what the gift of the day is.
