This Barnes and Noble really is not bad. I've personally hit it up several times for some studying. The employees and customers do not seem to give very much gripe about it. The biggest problem that I have experienced with this particular store is them not regularly carrying books that I need for studying. Therefore, I often have to go the online route. Also, the philosophy section, which I was apparently responsible for supporting for years, has diminished over the past few years to almost nothing.
