I visit Barnes and Noble quite frequently and for good reason. When I need a book ,newspaper,or magazine I know I can find it there. The parking lots is usally almost full but I always find a space. The atomsphere is cozy even though it is a large store. The associate are helpful when you can not locate a book. Also, they will order a book if it's not in stock. I enjoy it because I can sit and read any of their books as well to see if I want to purchase it. They encourage folks to hang around a while and scope them out. I'd reccommend you go by and sit for an hour or two.
