Best Of Tucson®

Best Bookstore for New Books

Barnes and Noble

If the smell of brand-new books makes your toes curl in ecstasy, then Barnes and Noble is your store. The chain has two Tucson locations, both of which offer the hottest sellers, free Wi-Fi and even a cup of joe if you're into Starbucks. In addition to being crammed with the latest books to hit the shelves, Barnes and Noble is also crammed with events for you and your family. OK, maybe not crammed with events, but the northwest-side store regularly features children's story time, and the eastside has group gatherings. An upcoming Sci-Fi/Fantasy Book Group meeting may be a good one to hit, just to see whether the apocalypse is living up to some of the theories surrounding it.
