There is something about the smell of Barns & Nobel. I am instantly taken up a notch when I walk into one. Honestly, I don’t care if the smell is a natural side effect of so many books in one place, or if they pump it in artificially. I just hope they never change it.
I usually hang out at the Barns & Nobel at the Summit. It’s a great place. I can browse for hours, find something I like, and sit in one of many easy chairs scattered through the walls of books. When I get a little tired, no need to worry, there is a Starbucks located in the store to perk me right up. And on top of that, they serve Cheesecake Factory cheesecake – does it get any better? Yes, yes it does. They have a great outside patio area. The only thing better than sitting and reading in an easy chair is sitting and reading outside on a cool sunny day.
Once you get addicted to this place, I recommend investing in one of the $25 membership cards. You can use for anything in the store including the Starbucks items and save on every purchase. Plus they constantly sent you coupons by email which I end up using quite often.
