Reasons Why I’m Really Starting to Hate Barnes&

  1. When you want to buy books from the marketplace, it doesn’t really communicate what condition the books are in.
If anyone watched the book haul I did yesterday, then you will know that I got Angel by James Patterson from Barnes& I actually got it from B& marketplace. For, like, 20 cents (although it ended up being something like four dollars with shipping and handling)
Until I got it, however, I DID NOT KNOW that that particular copy of Angel was covered in gross library stickers. (Before I did the book haul, I took off the library stickers and the library covering, because I find those library coverings disgusting. Especially if it is a book that will live on my SHELF.)
If you watched the book haul I did yesterday, then you might have noticed, about halfway through, when I said I got Exile and Muse (by Rebecca Lim) because they weren’t on B&
In all fairness, you can’t buy them from either, but you can get them from the marketplace. You can’t on B& When you type in Exile by Rebecca Lim into the B&N search bar, it comes up with NOTHING. This kind of pissed me off.
  1. Most things are cheaper on
I feel this one is kind of self-explanatory.

So, those are the reasons why I’m starting to like Barnes& less and more.
Since I mentioned that Barnes&Noble was starting to annoy me in my book haul, I just felt compelled to explain why.
