Going to a bookstore and checking out the books yourself is an experience that a book lover cannot get online. Borders is one of my favorite bookstores. I spend at least a few hours there every month checking out new books. There clearance section always have good books on bargain prices and if you have a coupon (you need to sign up online), you get a great deal on the books. The staff is great and in case you need to return a book, they don't hassle you at all.
