As a book lover, I absolutely adore going to Barnes & Noble! Just the smell of all those books gets me going. The selection is outstanding and the staff is generally knowledgeable. Don't forget to check out the bargain book section for great buys and the selection of greeting cards is unique and fun. The children's section is a place of happiness for my daughter and I. Though I can find books cheaper online, you just can't beat being able to touch and feel and smell all those pages!
