When you can buy most books online with free shipping (yay Amazon!) at lower prices than bookstores, the bookstores need to bring something to the table to make the trip worth it. While my favorite bookstores tend to be local places where the workers seem to know at least half of their inventory from personally reading it, I also enjoy a trip to the mega book stores like Borders and Barnes and Noble. Books a Million, I do not. First, their name is misleading, unless it counts having a few hundred copies of the most popular books. Also, while there was not a specific housecleaning issue, I just found the store dirty. The books are also very poorly organized. If you have a Borders near you, head there for some time in a bookstore. Otherwise, just stick to the library or online. Most libraries have better atmosphere than this store.
