Foursquare Tips

  • They have books here.
  • Judging every book by it's cover.
  • get moleskine notebooks/travel joirnals etc. ... just like chatwin used !
  • If you're going there to do homework, keep in mind that there are no outlets for your laptop. Also. the Starbucks inside doesn't take Starbucks gift cards!
  • This Barnes & Noble store is also an AT&T Wi-Fi Hot Spot. Curl up with your Nook and connect with AT&T Wi-Fi.
  • Barnes & Noble is the best book store. They have a great selection on almost every book available. They also have fun knick knacks you can pick up. This is the first place I go Christmas Shopping.
  • Invest in a nook - same as a kindle but you're supporting a brick-and-mortar bookstore!
  • Locks on the electrical outlets; weak.
  • You can tell a lot about the community you live in by visiting their local barnes and nobles and seeing what sells best. People near here must have some serious self-esteem and relationship issues.
  • They put padlocks on the outlets. I was told they don't like people using their power while enjoying a coffee. At $5.00 per coffee I think they can let us power up and they'd still be making money!
  • If you need the book for a class, wait to see how much you really need it before buying. If it's occasional only, just come here and read it for free!
  • Be aware if you need help finding a book since it seems to inconvenience some of the staff there to assist you.
  • Open until 11PM Monday-Thursday. Open until midnight Friday & Saturday! Unless you must have a book immediately, save your money & order it off
  • pocket calendars and magnetic daily planners
  • They hold a quite good selection of books for a small library
  • Good luck trying to find an outlet here for your laptop. :(
  • Pick a book, a cup of coffee and enjoy the calm atmosphere
  • Obnoxious and pushy sales staff. No matter how many times you tell them you don't want to buy anything other than the book you brought to the counter, they will not let it go. Thank God for Amazon.
  • I love to read & therefore love bookstores... All shapes and sizes. Great to hang, browse, have coffee (Starbucks) or meet a friend. Amazon is certainly cheaper but can never replace the real thing.
  • Nice Barnes and Noble, Very student friendly. Employees are willing to help patrons, plus there is a D&B near so you can indulge in Literature and play arcade games.
