Our readers like Barnes and Noble. If you're a volume reader and plow through page turners, Barnes and Noble is the place for you. If you want to read everything Steven Hunter or Ruth Rendell has ever written, it's on the shelves of Barnes and Noble. If you're dying to know all about Kurt Cobain, yet can't decide which bio to read, this is the place that will have all of them in stock. If you want to learn Italian, French, Spanish or Esperanto, Barnes and Noble will have three CD sets to choose from in each language. The layout's intuitive; there's Starbucks coffee on site.
