Best New Bookstore

Barnes and Noble

We know, we know, chain stores, blah blah blah. But if the chain thing were a real issue, then you, dear readers, would not have chosen Barnes and Noble as Tucson's Best New Bookstore. Again. So whether you're looking for a great book about real zombies (The Serpent and the Rainbow by Wade Davis), the culture of nighttime (At Day's Close by A. Roger Ekirch) or the Werewolves of London (I'll Sleep When I'm Dead: The Dirty Life and Times of Warren Zevon by Crystal Zevon), or your taste runs to a brand new techno-thriller for the 21st century (Spook Country by William Gibson) or a real-live horror story (Down by the River by Tucson's own Charles Bowden), then Barnes and Noble is the place to go.
