They also own many. With avid readers, the best bet it often a gift card. The best place to give a gift card to for books is by far Borders. Borders runs many promotions for teachers to receive additional discounts, and have a much wider selection and better store arrangement than their competitor that also starts with a B. I never have difficulty finding a selection in their store, with logical and extensive sections, and readily available staff and inventory searching software. Also, the gift cards can be used online. Borders is partnered with Amazon.com, so chances are, if the book exists, then they can use their Borders card to buy it. I have found many difficult to find books, even published in other countries, that have been delivered to my door through this partnership.
