On Tour: Barnes & Noble Arrowhead

In the way of "big box stores" Barnes & Noble is one of the good ones in my opinion. They make an honest effort to do right by authors and publishers. They have a wide range of books and this location also has a great selection of gifts and games. (If you're a Hunger Games fan or interested in all the hype, stop by!) There is a round Starbuck's in the center of the store which often has book themed treats and is a great place to use the free wi-fi. I have met here for self-start book clubs and they don't mind you hanging out and chatting for a bit. This store is clean, well-organized and well-stocked. Their focus is clearly on the Nook but the staff is friendly enough and willing to help when asked.

  1. I love my B&N. I just get frustrated that they take so much longer to get their ebooks up than Amazon. They need to COMPETE if they want to stay around.

  2. I didn't know they were being slow about getting their ebooks out, that's terrible! I really hope they do step it up and compete. I really do love B&N.
