Barnes and Noble are useless in my one and only experience of them.

When I was in Florida, Traitor was released, and I phoned around about 5 bookshops to find it, and nobody did. Two of those stores where Barnes & Noble.

I eventually tracked it down at a Waldenbooks :)

Actually, preordering is lazier... considering you have the book shipped to your house so you DON'T have to go to the store.... hee hee, I win! :grin:

Not really. You have to DRIVE to the bookstore. And unless Canada is teeming with oil wells, which I know it's not, you're better off just staying home, lol.

Well since we were SO far off topic, I decided to split this into it's own topic.

Good idea. There is a topic in the Archives that is the most off-topic post I've ever seen...

*realises he's off-topic*

I go to Barnes&Nobles or Borders to buy all my NJO and other books. I never pre-order.

Bookstore or Wal-Mart. Wal-Mart is usually cheaper, I can get hardcovers for $17 there.

I like to order books online that I can't find in the stores, otherwise I like to buy them at a store. The whole thing with Wal-Mart is not only are the books cheaper, but the Wal-Mart neat me usually puts the books out early.

Good thing I got Reunion when I was home. The WalMart at school STILL doesn't have it out...

I always get mine from the little bookstore down the street... nice place. Pretty small sci-fi section, but I'm trying to change that.

I prefer online ordering, as I don't have to deal with any human contact and I can be incredibly lazy at the same time.

Book store..

Online requires credit cards...and my parents don't let me play around with theirs when I'm online :p
