Re: Barnes & Nobel shrinking
I buy enough from B&N every year to justify the $25 annual membership. I used to stop in the store every month to buy the latest Trek book and browse other areas but lately I decided that since my membership gives me free shipping I save more by pre-ordering on their website and not wasting gas to drive to the other side of town and back. I do miss the monthly browse through the store but will still get by there at least once a quarter to buy the Star Trek Magazine because the postal service cannot deliver it in mint condition. I've been collecting Trek mags for far too long to skimp on the magazines! I go back to The Official Fan Club No. 42 if memory serves me right, as well as the various Starlog Trek zines, and every issue and incarnation since (this amounts now to several hundred Trek mags all in plastic protectors).
