Good, fuck B&N had to buy my books from them in college. Couldn't buy used because they include "online" portions that require a code.

Aw, that sucks. I love going into bookstores and perusing what they have to offer. Amazon suggestions don't begin to offer the same. Amazon also removes 'offensive' books because, you know, people are forced to see them even though they have to hunt them down to find them.
