Should I Spend Donuts On Bookaccino’s?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Gil’s back in Springfield…this time offering up some discounted donut deals. So break open that donut emergency glass, because some of these deals are too good to pass up!

Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to buy everything that looks as awesome as this because it’ll be gone soon.  But don’t sweat it!  That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add the Bookaccino’s to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these mega book store to your Springfield…


Building/Decoration: Bookaccino’s
Donut Price: 100 Donuts with a 20 donut rebate, so Net 80 Donuts.
Real Estate Value: 4 million ico_heights_realestate_lg when Placed
Earns: $300, 30xp/12hrs
Size: 8×8
Conform-O-Meter: Consumerism +20

Leaves stores October 4th

-Cool, unique looking building.  Will go nicely in Springfield Heights
-Impacts consumerism, always nice to have another building there
-Short questline associated with it
-Lisa has a 4hr task there, Keep Bookaccino’s from Going Under ($260, 70xp)

-building animation is weak…lights turn on and the doors open
-Pricing for just a building…

Final Thought:
This is one of those toss up items.  Personally, I think you should save your donuts and grab another Beach Hideaway OR save your donuts for Halloween. No task associated with this, so unless you’ve got an affection for the building…pass.

Pass.  Freemium players should pass this one over, grab the hideaway…and save the rest of your donuts for Halloween.  Skip this one, you ain’t missing much.

Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do.  And I can tell you I’ll likely be passing on this one.  Just doesn’t excite me as a premium item….  Of course whatever you decide just remember this is limited time and will be leaving our games very soon (October 4th).  So if you’re thinking about grabbing it, do it very soon before it’s gone for good!

Here’s a look at the questline that come with it….


Night at the Book Museum
Marge starts

Homer: Hey, they have ebooks on paper now!
Marge: It’s called a book, Homer.  That’s how people used to read.
Homer: Uggh!  Turning two hundred pages?! I’m just one man, Marge.
Make Marge Peruse Joke Titles- 1hr, Earns $105, 25xp
Squeaky Voiced Teen: Sir, please be careful with your coffee around the books.
Homer: Why sell coffee and books in the same place anyway?  Next you’ll be telling me they sell gasoline alongside cigarettes.
Squeaky Voiced Teen: Actually, service stations do.
Homer: Amazing!  This world is passing me by.

  1. I like this building. I bought it as soon as it was available.
    And.. It can be placed on the squid port, That’s where I placed mine..
    I think the building looks nice. 🙂

  2. Finally decided to spend all my donuts on the beach hideaways. Now own them all! Feels good. Just need to arrange the newest three. LOVE IT!

  3. Weird, I can no longer apply to anyone’s post, but wanted to say thanks to the Addict above who mentioned the beach hideaway; as a freemium player who doesn’t do hacks or whatever, I hoard my donuts as much as possible, but that’s a crazy large bonus, not to mention the millions in real-estate points from upgrading (and not needing tons of yoga mats to do so, something I always look for since everything requires them, I have excess of everything else at all times).

  4. Will the beach hideaway stay available permanently after the 4th?

  5. I love large bookstores but they are a dying breed. In Singapore , they only left one kinokuniya still operating.

  6. When I saw that beach hideaway I immediately thought it would be a total pass for me, as a freemium player. But with Alissa saying so many times that we must grab one, I’m starting to reconsider. lol

  7. I was excited about this one and bought it right away, purely because I used to work at Books A Million in the cafe, so this building just tickles me.

  8. I was expecting Boccaccio’s to come with TR Francis in a Angelica Button mini-event.

  9. Is there a game bug right now that we know of? My fiancé lost his game last night and is back to level 1 inexplicably (still hoping EA can fix that) and now my game is no longer giving me the x4 resources. -_-
    Don’t they know the damage they could cause an addict going cold turkey?!
    Big Dramatic Sigh!..!..!

  10. Will save my donuts for Halloween.
    My 4x SH rewards disappeared on me this morning. There for a while, then Pouf, gone!

    • Hey – you’re right! I was counting on that sticking around until the 4th, like they said! I wonder what’s up with that?

  11. Lisa has a job there.

    • Yeah a 4 hour job! Which is fantastic because I love the way the bookstore looks when it’s being used ;0) Looks great next to the other bookstore we just got a few weeks ago too 🙂

  12. I love books. I love bookstores. But I love raising my bonus percentage more 😀
