    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 =)

    Incredible B&N. They're always a staple, in every city- I love to see what they do with their spaces :) http://badfantasyrx.blogspot.com/2016/08/charlaine-harris-dead-until-dark.html

    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.

    This barnes and nobles is about 4 floors! Starbucks is in the 4th floor I think. Have a great selection of books, new releases. Typical Barnes n nobles just bigger!

    After purchasing your favorite coffee beverage, go straight to the job and career book section. Read up on how to make the best impression, but remember, practice makes perfect.

    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!
  • Malene H.
    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 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.

    The biggest bookstore in New York that I know. They always have what I'm looking for plus there's a Starbucks on the top floor.

    I love coming here to browse the tables and staff suggestions - like what you'd find in an independent bookshop. They support small presses too.

    Book signings and bands perform on the top floor stage. The Polyphonic Spree were here recently. Sound was great if a bit loud.

    This is the original (aka first) Barnes and Noble. Sells vinyl records in front. Fantastic appearances by authors and politicians like Elizabeth Warren! (March 2015).

    now that it's fall there are a lot of big events planned - when the 4th floor is shut down, ask at the 3rd floor for the book you need - someone will bring it down for you!

    Arguably the best B & N to browse at, but the cafe- full of freeloaders and unsmiling employees, isn't fun to have a cup of coffee at.
  • Stephenie D.
    One of my top 5 favorite stores. They always have the books I'm looking for, they're very organized, and it's just so peaceful in here.

    Almost impossible to find a chair to seat on 3rd floor star bucks. Instead, grab your coffee and head up 4th floor, where you will find a bunch of seats available(though without a table).

    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.

    Peruse and purchase that new book you were eyeing. Ample enough space to take a break after walking around the city, or to meet up with friends.

    Good break from the heat or cold. Large store that has pretty much any book or magazine you could want. Bathrooms!

    This is my favorite Barnes and noble! It's huge! You can always go read your new book right across the street at Union Square Park.

    Believe it or not, the cafe here has some really amazing chocolate chunk cookies. Way better than your typical Starbucks cookie.

    Good place to go if the Strand makes you nervous or something. There's free WiFi and decent pastries upstairs too.

    When there's no speaker on the 4th floor, you can just chill in one of the chairs they have set up and read something off the shelves.

    It's a Barnes and Noble, so good selection. But no wall outlets in the café and they yell at you for sitting and reading near the bookcases.
  • Madeline M.
    Pretty good selection of DVDs and Blu-Ray films including a vast array of criterion collection editions. Frequent sales.

    In the rare event you find a table, grab it quickly. Then sell it to someone else waiting. Repeat all day. Live like a pharaoh.

    Maybe if they had more seating ppl wudnt feel the need to sit on the floor. Srsly, the best thing about BandN is the being able to sit on the floor!
