    barns and noble sucks

    I only say this because they limited the supply of one of my textbooks, jacking the price up, and then pushed a new edition of it a semester later, making the resale value of my $120 calc book nothing.

    Sounds like a win/win situation for them. Besides, you can always use a calc book.

    reminds me of buying my $50-$60 dollar book and then at the end of the year they sell it for $1 *sigh* (although I did pick up some good books then so I guess I can't complain)
