As one of the last large book sellers I definitely love Barnes & Noble (and I’m not just saying that because I want them to stay around)! They always have a huge selection of every type of book you could be looking for, and there’s usually really great bargain deals, too! It’s also a great place to look for gifts for others, as they have a bunch of games, puzzles, and more. The atmosphere is very relaxing and the staff are super friendly and helpful. Check out lines can get long, but they move really fast so it’s never a problem!

My happy place! Lol this is the first bookstore I go to if I'm looking for a new "spiritual new age" book or if I need a specific movie or music album (they seriously have a fantastic selection!). They also have a lot of fun games and puzzles (they also have these Disney sculptures that I love there that are handmade and gorgeous.. Very expensive!)... Kids section is great for the little ones to roam in, they have a personal nook area and they have an entire area for gifts, etc. that I always get good finds in there! Prices are a bit more than other stores but this is seriously a go to store for me.. Love it!

Barnes and Noble are my favorite book store!  I wish there was one closer to my home but, It's worth the trip, to find all the literature I need! In an age where everyone is reading from tablets and computers and cell phones, it's hard to keep paperback or hard cover relevant. I personally love the sound of a brand new book being opened.  the smell of parchment.  I live for it!

I often go to Barnes and Noble for two reason: 1. to just check out what the new books are 2.to grab some coffee while browsing through their books.  I enjoy going because I work in a similar environment so it helps me stock on on what the "up and coming" books are. The only downside is that you can barely get a seat when it's during busy hours since it is so commerical. I like to go during a time no one else is so I can take my time. They usually have a good selection of whichever section you're looking into, but if I like something in store I will check the read alike books on BN.com and Goodreads. Their stores are huge, but it is commercialized so you'll see a lot of things that you wouldn't see a smaller one, but if you love books like me than you can't complain too much.

I love Barnes and Noble. They have everything to offer from children’s books to teen dramas and adult horror to textbooks and cookbooks. Anything you would need is most likely here. They even have a section of game, toys, and collectibles making this truly a place for anyone no matter your age or chosen hobbies. Plus they have a cafe so there’s really nothing to lose going here.

This is the most reliable place to buy books or anything related. The stores have a wide selection and if they don’t have what your looking for in stores they can order it for you! There’s a lot of locations which is convenient and there’s a Starbucks inside which is a bonus! It’s a great place to study and hang
Out as well.

This place is great! The staff is always friendly and helpful and the place is also very clean and organized. They always have a good selection of books on sale and I love that everything is easily findable and organized well. I could spend hours just sitting in here.

I love my Nook HDplus.  I've had it for quite a while and I'm constantly reading something on it that I've found on the B&N store.  It stays by my bedside.  I can also easily slide it into a purse pocket if I know I'm going to have the chance to read while I'm out.  Should the time come that I have to replace my current Nook, I will do it as soon as possible.  There is good selection of books to order in the shop and there are always books and even book series that you can get for free.

I love this book store but havent been here in years. I hate that they have a membership that you have to pay for. The selection is always very nice and like that they sell a lot of different things. I used to shop here a lot when i was in high school and college. I was always reading books, but dont have as much time now. I like how there is almost always a coffee shop inside
