  1. For me, I need to turn up my nose at the glamor of B&N and go straight for the bargains at Half Price Books. Of course there is something to be said for the coffee at Barnes & Noble...

  2. I love Joseph-Beth Bookstores in Lexington, Ky!!! I'm not sure, but I think it's the biggest independent in the country.

    Great giveaway, thanks!

  3. I like the large independent used and new bookstore in the town over.

  5. I love Half Price Books because I can leave with double the books for a lot less. I do like Barnes and Noble when I want something to pretty to look at because they have the books arranged so nicely. Thanks for a great giveaway!

  8. My favourite bookstore is Amazon.com, which has just about everything I could ever need. If I am looking locally and in no rush, I like Books & Co.

  9. I love B & N! There is such a huge collection of books there! Of course, it is located about a half an hour away from where I live. We need one closer! So I do a lot of online shopping from them.

  12. Olsson's used to be my favorite, but now that it's closed? Unfortunately, until I find a replacement, Border's definitely wins.

    ReplyDelete
  13. My favorite is Amazon.com. A wide variety of books to choose from.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Amazon is my favorite. I can browse any time day or night. I have a list of my favorites. And they deliver right to my door. It's great!

  15. I love Schuler Books, my big-but-local bookstore. All the selection of the big chains plus the all the feel-good of shopping local -- plus a used book section!

  18. I love www.half.com though they don't always have what I'm looking for - second best is Amazon. Both on-line because I cannot imagine trying to shop for books with my children all in tow. :)

  20. I love Borders for their coupons, Amazon for their shopping 24/7 and Barnes & Noble for their loungeability. LOL But I think my fave is Amazon, since I can just keep adding to my wish list and then buying as I get funds.

  24. I have to confess... I love all book stores (used or new! lol) but my favorite would have to be Borders. It's just perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I like Strand book store, which has tons of book selections, reasonable prices but honesty, I prefer to buy new books but once in a while it's nice to stroll through the isles and just browse

    ReplyDelete
  26. I prefer an independent bookstore but since there are none by me I have to go with Barnes & Noble. We have a Borders too but it's not set-up properly! Too many distractions. Our B&N is conducive to browsing and has a nice cafe so I say B&N.

    Thanks for the opportunity!

  27. My favorite is still Amazon, because they're generally good to all authors and publishers, of any size, and because free shipping!

  28. My favorite National bookstore would be Lifeway Christian books, but my all time fav bookstore is a local used bookstore. I love that place. lol

Also it helps they have the discount card you can buy which is good if you buy lots of books like me so you save alot. :) Thanks for the giveaway, please enter me.

  38. My favorite place to buy books is the amazon marketplace. Does that count? I like to browse through bookstores (B&N especially) but it usually so much cheaper to buy online!

    I am of course already subscribed to your RSS feed!

    ReplyDelete
  39. My favorite bookstore is Amazon. I'm able to browse and find books online that I'm interested in. I'm also able to read reviews. I like that I can find good books at a good price.

  43. I'm gonna cheat a little bit.

    MY favorite book store is a thrift store. I love the crazy assortment of books and the smell and the thrill of the hunt.

    For this giveaway, I'm gonna tell you that my husband LOVES B&N, and I would love the chance to win a GC to put in his stocking.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Amazon is my favorite bookstore, if it can count. I love their prices, free shipping at $25, and their wide selection.

    I also like to shop at used bookstores. They have a neat one near where I live. I love to find a good book at a bargain!

    ReplyDelete
  45. This is a tough question. I love Recycled Books. They're a local used bookstore in town. They're in a bright purple building and I can't remember a time when I didn't shop there.

    I also enjoy Borders though it isn't in town. I'm signed up for the Borders Reward program. And I love some of the perks that come with that. (Border bucks are my friends!)

    Online, I love, love, love Amazon.

  47. Oh - my favorite by far is www.half.com . I generally find great deals on there, often for the cost of shipping, which is a little less than Amazon's used marketplace. If I can find the book for less at Amazon, that is a close second! Locally, we have a great B&N right down the street - I don't know if I've ever found a bookstore I didn't like! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  54. Doesn't Starbucks qualify because we can go there to read??!! My favorite bookstore is a locally owned one. I have enjoyed every recommendation they have given me. If they don't have it, they order it. Do like to larger chain stores too.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Well, BAM is here and there are NO OTHER bookstores in my area! I know! How horrible! So, I love BAM and I love Amazon. I really love Coffee Culture in Gainesville, FL. They have a free book exchange and great coffee! LOL LOL LOL

    ReplyDelete
  62. Okay, I do most of my book shopping online at cbd.com, but I like hitting the bargain tables at Waldenbooks (our only big chain bookstore) and I visit our local Christian bookstore Bible Supply for browsing.

    Thanks!

  63. I my favorite is Barnes and Nobel simply because they are much closer to where I live than any other bookstores. :) I do like the nearby Christian bookstore, but their selection is a little weak. When I can't find something I order from cbd.com

  65. We have BAM and B&N in Huntsville (nearest city with bookstores). I prefer B&N because it is cozier.

    ReplyDelete
  69. for ease of convenience I love Amazon.com, but when I go into New York City I hit 'The Strand'. I can't even begin to tell you how many out of print books I've found for so cheap brand new! Literally 8 miles+ of books if they put their shelves back to back its a dream come true for me.

  70. I love Powell's! They have one here in Portland Oregon and it's every readers dreams! It smells off old and new books...I literally would love the chance to live there... LOL

  71. Here in the heartland we have just a Borders in town -- which I'm not sniffing at. But my favorite bookstore of all time is Politics and Prose in D.C. LOVE IT! Great readings, great selections, helpful employees. I want to put it in my pocket and take it home with me.

  75. I like Barnes and Noble as it's closest to where I live.

    ReplyDelete
  76. City Lights in San Fran - history and quality.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Wow, that is a LOT of comments. My favourite bookstore in the whole world is the Borders in downtown Eugene. As you (probably?) know, I met my husband online, and then a year after we started talking, he flew out (from London) to see me (in Oregon) and stayed in a hotel across the street from this huge Borders. The first day I met him, he suggested we go wander around Borders for a chat and it was such a great way to re-meet him, talking about books and stuff. We spent a lot of time there, so I like it not only because it has a large selection of books, the great staff, their yum ham and cheese pastries, but also because I fell in love with my husband there for the second time.
    If you were asking where I'd want a giftcard from though, I think amazon.co.uk would be more practical for me. But less of a great story! :) And also, I've been subscribed to your blog for AGES.

    ReplyDelete
  78. My favorite bookstore is Barnes and Noble. I go there at least once a week, lol. I like it b/c it's close and they generally has about a million books I want. Plus it's organized in such a way that I can easily find things.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Forgot to say, I subscribed!

    ReplyDelete
  80. Amazon.ca is my favourite bookstore because before it came a long I had a hard time getting books ordered in that I knew existed (independent bookstores would insist they didn't).

    I can be contacted through my blog (click on the name and leave a comment anywhere or my e-mail is the bottom of my about page).

  82. My favorite bookstore is a small privately owned store downtown, but my other favorite is Books-A-Million for the simple reason that it's right up the road from my house. :)

  84. I like Amazon for it's huge inventory. But I also like Half Price Books, where I can get books for a price which doesn't bust my wallet, especially in light of today's economy.

    Thanks for this great giveaway!

  86. My favorite book store would have to be Amazon, since I can find great deals there without having to leave the house. It's so much more relaxing to shop from home than to try to find a good read with a 4 year old in tow. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  87. My favorite book store is a local new and used book store called appropiately, The Book Place. The owner and clerks are friendly and helpful. I can buy my books there then return them for store credit to buy even more books. The owner makes a little money and I get to feed my reading addict at a minimal cost.

  88. Hi! :)

    I recently fell in love with a used books store in a lovely mountain town in my country (Panama), called The Bookmark. It was heaven! Books stacked up to the ceiling, the smell of old paperbacks (which I love)... Ahhhh!

    Anyway, my favorite online bookstore is probably ThriftBooks.com

    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  94. Borders is my personal favorite. I like how it's laid out. We have an independent bookstore here, but I find the layout to not be intuitive.

    Oh, and I'm already subscribed to your blog, and have been reading it, for, like, EVAR. :D

    ReplyDelete
  95. My favourite new bookstore is McNally Robinson. They're a locally owned company that started small but has been able to expand into a few different provinces over the past few years. Their shops are fantastic; they have nooks for each genre, a great children's section, lots of dark wood, chairs for customers, a great bargain section... I could go on and on. I love 'em to bits.

    My favourite used bookstore is Half Price Books. We don't have them here in Canada, but I never visit the Twin Cities area without checking theirs out. Their bargain section is to die for; I always buy way, way too much.

  104. Although I adore Amazon, I would go for a GC to my local haunt, Humpus Bumpus in my little town in favor of putting money in the local merchant's hands rather than the big ol conglomerate. Ya know?

    But, sigh, they don't have any coffee there. Afraid I'll spill it on the books.

    On the other hand, Last time I was there she gave me a free galley copy. Nice.

    Thanks for having the giveaway!

  118. I really enjoy going to Half Price Books. If I'm looking for a specific book, I love getting it at half price. However, my first stop is always in their bargain section. I get great hardcover books for either a $1 or $2. You can't beat that! I do like to visit B&N, too. The coffee is great and I like to check out their bargain tables.

  127. I have to say that my favorite book store is Barnes & Nobles. I know, it's a huge corporation and all, but honestly, it's the only place I can get the kind of books I need. Others want to charge so much that I end up going to B&N anyways!

  130. My favorite bookstore is Powell's books in Portland ,OR. I don't get there often as it's about a 4 hour drive,but you can spend days in there and not get through the entire store. It takes up an entire city block.

  134. I buy most of my books online, used to be BN but now it's more Amazon with those 4/3 deals, I can catch up on ones I've missed and get a deal, and when I get lucky and have a few GCs I can use more than one.

  136. I love Amazon the best. They have the greatest prices on books. Other than that I get a lot of my books at garage sales. Can't beat $.25 for a good book. Thank you so much!

  143. My favorite bookstore is Borders books. I have a great Borders fairly close to my home and the people who work there are great. They know me by name, hold my books when I ask, and are very friendly in general.

  149. My favorite bookstore is Joseph-Beth Bookstores at Legacy Village.
    It's a store that I don't get to visit that often but when I do I feel very comfortable there. They also have great author visits and programs for kids as well. Our favorite was when Marc Brown, author of the Arthur books visited.

    I am a subscriber of your blog through google reader!

    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  152. My favorite is Borders because they have such good deals. I also like half price books for obvious reason. But, Barnes&Noble is the closest book store to me that i can get to for browsing, so that is gift card I would like. I love browsing for books.

  155. Oh I love your comment rules. Here goes:

    My favorite "all-time" bookstore is Titlewave in Anchorage Alaska. Such a cool place with new and used books, CDs, etc. PLUS a Kaladi's Coffee shop attached. Sigh. For New York City, I'm still trying to find it. I'll let you know if I do. So far it's the Housing Works Bookstore/Cafe.

    And I already subscribe :)

  156. I am fortunate enough to live near Powell's in Portland Oregon. I love this bookstore-it's huge and has everything, and they give you trade-in value on your old books. I would recommend that anyone visiting the area to stop by and take a look!

  157. I used to love to go to Barnes and Noble and drink coffee while I browsed around. Now that I have young kids I browse and shop through Amazon. Much easier and saner way to shop when you have kids whose favorite activity is taking all the books off the shelf and then throwing a fit when it is time to clean up. :) thanks for the chance

  158. Living in a small town in far western Oklahoma, without access to a bookstore of any kind, I have to rely on Amazon for buying, and on blogs like yours for reviews and recommendations.

  159. Well, I love Amazon.com when it comes to online book shopping - and paperbackswap.com for used books! I frequent our library bookstore for used books here. :-) Great giveaway! :-)

  165. Right now with a toddler, I like the local B&N because they have a train set that kids love to play with. But, my romantic memory has a special place for this bookstore in Paris that I frequented as a student abroad. Lots of dusty books, very little I understood, but I wanted to read everything!

  166. One of my most favorite things is a warm bubble bath.

    Thank you!

  167. My favorite all time favorite book store and coffee shop was called the living room. No other book store will ever compete in my eyes. It was a community get together. They had poetry readings, music night. You could smell the books from the shelves, there were couches and chairs scattered to look like a living room. With a piano. It was not large but was not small it was cozy enought for everyone. It also had Wooden floors, it was also a coffee shop, and served lunch. Everyone knew everyone. The owner made sure you felt welcome and made sure all the staff knew you. Unfortunately, the town of Myrtle Beach is owned, and I am not kidding there is such a thing as a certain family owning a town. They raised the rent and the owner had to leave. I never knew what the good o'le boys meant till I moved to this town. I always thought that happened only in movies.

  169. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Borders! They have a great selection of my favorite kinds of books. There is an astounding amount of books that I haven't heard of before seeing them there, but read because I saw them while browsing and liked what I saw. It is less than 2 miles away from where I live, and can keep my parents and brother entertained while I am off on my own. We will spend hours there if we can, and have!

  175. Barnes and Noble is the place to go for books and bargains, don't I know!

  191. I like to wander around Barnes & Noble. Although I've been spending some time on Amazon lately.....

    ReplyDelete
  192. While I'm crazy about Amazon, there's nothing like being able to touch and open a book. For that reason I picked a real store, Characters which is a second hand bookstore. There I'm able to find older books as well as new and I can trade ones I've already read.

    ReplyDelete
  193. I love shopping at Books a Million b/c it's a nice atmosphere and you can thumb through anything

    ReplyDelete
  194. Borders would be my choice. Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  195. There aren't too many choices in book stores where I live, but if I have to choose it would definitely be Barnes and Noble. I like them for their discount book section--I always find something I really like for a really good deal. (Oh yeah-and there is a Starbuck's in the store)
