The Barnes and Noble on RT. 17 in Paramus, NJ used to be an EXCELLENT place to buy Trek books because they have a gigantic used books section. Throughout the past 5 years or so I managed to build quite the collection, including picking up some rarities in excellent condition (purchased A Stitch in Time there for $3.00 once.
Over the years it got smaller and small. Every paperback was only $3.00 and soon became just .99 cents.
Now? Their entire shelf that was devoted to Trek books is gone. There's still some Trek books sprinkled here and there in their .99 cents pile but still...heartbreaking.
Oh, and their non-used book selection is weak sauce. Seriously, I haven't seen a new Trek book on their shelves in months.
This is the first I've heard of a B&N having a used book section. Fascinating. (I live down in Edison so my datapoints are Menlo Park Mall and the B&N in Clark).
I've never see another Barnes and Noble with a used books section, let alone a gigantic used books section. They sell tons of hard to find books for dirt cheap or very reasonable prices.
