Maybe it's just the books I looked at that were full retail. Yes, there were sale books but my son spent almost $200 on our last trip and none were less than retail. He wasn't interested in NYT bestsellers or the latest teen paranormal book as those were about the only discounted items that I recall seeing. There were tables full of books that were nicely displayed but were full price.
I hate to see all bookstores close so I hope that B&N can pull it together.
