love it. 3/23/2007

I love it. Its my favorite time pass. I buy loads of books from here for my kids, myself or for giving gifts. They have huge collection. any book you want they have it. if they don't, you can order it and you get it in couple of days.\r I especially like the children's section, they have play area, kid's size tables, chairs and benches. they have story time. more

Of all Barnes and noble stores, I have been to, this one is my favorite. The bookstore is very big and bright. Lots of parking space. They have books on almost every topic. The kids area is huge. They have a good selection of preschool activity books. I bought numerous workbooks for my 4 year old. Their price is right and they top in their customer service more

Love this book store 3/8/2006

I love this book store. It is quiet and clean. Nice environment for kids too. Lots and lots of books to browse through. My kids loves to go here. We just sit in a corner and read books. Great place to go with kids. The have a great "SALE" bin upfront and some of the books are real steals for that price. more

Very good bookstore 3/5/2006

One of the few bookstores left in the south bay, this is one of my favorite haunts. There is a nice coffee shop inside and the place is great for browsing books. I must confess though that its been a while since I bought any book in a regular bookstore (since the online stores are cheap). I am however an old fashioned person and I love regular bookstores. When times were good in the valley, I could expense a book to my company, but these days they ask too many questions. Though I cant help, I hope these bookstores stay. Barnes and Noble probably will, since its a big chain. I am more sad for the mom and pop shops. In anycase I recommend this bookstore heavily. They have a great selecion more

Great environment 11/6/2005

I very much like the feeling I get when entering this store. It is very spacious and filled with books. Coffee area is a nice touch as well for anyone who wants to enjoy some drinks while reading. I believe they also have wireless access there. Book selection is quite good, I usually find what I am looking for. However, as I am interested in art, that is often a section I peruse and I found it to be a bit lacking. Employees are nice and polite. No complaints there. more

There is a nice coffee shop inside. The location is great and parking is easy. Reading here is really easy and comfortable. I would highly recommend this store. more

Huge Barnes and Noble 8/19/2005

I went here just to use the internet, but the store was huge. It was probably the biggest Barnes and Noble I've ever been to. There is a Starbucks inside like all other Barnes and Nobles. There appeared to be a wide selection of books and it was pretty quiet. The bathroom was in the far corner and looked like it needed to be cleaned. I would definitely go here again. more

Great Bookstore 7/10/2005

It is a huge book store with a great selection. The store is neat and very organized. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Reduced prices on new releases of books. The children's area is big and very pretty. The music section is very big with a great selection, too. The store is quiet and you can just pick up any book and read. The parking lot is huge. more

Best of Barnes and Noble 6/11/2005

I wish all of the Barnes and Nobles were like this one. It is easy to park, easy to find what you're looking for, service is great and they (of course) have a great selection of books. PROS: Discount to members CONS: more

Great place for books 6/1/2005

This is probably my favorite bookstore. I'm able to find almost anything I'm looking for. Their children's section is great and story time is a lot of fun. With an in-store coffee shop and comfy chair through-out, I've been known to lose a few hours in this place. There is ample parking available, so that is almost never a problem. I have also been able to meet a couple of my favorite authors since this store seems to be popular for book signings. more

Great bookstore 5/26/2005

This is a very nice bookstore with a great selection and friendly staff. Books were neat and ordered. Quiet atmosphere. It also has a nice little coffee shop in the middle. This store has the normal selection of magazines and books that you would expect from Barnes and Noble. They also have good prices on all new releases. more

books books books...and more 4/23/2005

Barnes and Noble is one of those huge chains that does not seem like one. They have an excellent selection of all genres of music...but still have many events and other activities unique to each location. more

VERY QUIET 4/14/2005


Nice quiet South Bay bookstore 3/2/2005

This Barnes & Noble is well-kept and has a cafe inside. The cafe is a bit small for my taste, but there is also more seating throughout the bookstore. I like this bookstore because of its great location. If you tell someone to meet you at the bookstore, they can't miss it cause it's right on the corner of two major streets. There is parking in the front and even more parking in the rear of the bookstore. This is a one-level bookstore that has spacious aisles, lots of magazines, and usually crowded cafe section. A lot of people tend to go to this bokstore to study or just look like they are studying. Westfield Valley Fair Mall and Santana Row is a few blocks away from this bookstore. Also, the bookstore is centrally located between I-280 and I-880. PROS: reat location bookstore with ample parking and quiet atmosphere CONS: more
