    Three floors of books in every possible genre. Quiet and not crowded. Starbucks on one of the floors. Also pretty good selection of vinyls.

    The biggest B&N in the city with a good selection of gaming and roleplaying books. More than a few Pathfinder supplements, but be sure and ask them to carry more!

    Find my book, Do It! Marketing and then grab a coffee. Sit, read, enjoy, make a ton of money as an entrepreneur. Then you can sit in bookstores whenever you feel like it =)

    This is one of the few remaining massive bookstores in the city, and it's a literary wonderland. Go here without any book in mind, just pick one up and start reading.

    Great place to camp out for an hour (or more) reading books. Grab some coffee at the Starbucks cafe inside and head up to the fourth floor for the reading section.

    The SAT / ACT section on the second floor is a pretty quiet place. The wooden chairs towards the back of the store are usually all full; a good place to harvest phone numbers, though.

    Stop by the cafe should you need a place to work in between meetings and chuckle when they tell you that they serve Starbucks coffee and don't accept Starbucks cards.

    You can't sit on the aisles, you can't sit by the windows, you can't sit by the kid section unless you have a kid. No place to sit unless you can find one by the always crowded Starbucks.
