    Im an idependent book store fan myself... Four walls, a roof, lots of mags, coffee, great atmosphere...Square Books is the place and they can get things to you just as fast as amazon..without paying the shipping.

    Personally I really like Amazon. I'm always satisfied with them. But for normal books, I tend to prefer buying them in stores, since I can get instant satisfaction rather than waiting for delivery.

    Same here. Spend hours at the local Barnes and Noble during the weekends. If I need to buy something, I get it from their website = no tax, free shipping and a further Citigroup employee discount (my wife works with the Cgroup).

    :edit: Just realized that there is no tax waiver. It is with B&H that they exclude the tax. Got it mixed up.

    We usually go to Borders, though I have ordered from Amazon before and have been quite pleased. I like to browse through a real store, I really miss this old Science Fiction/Fantasy & Myserty store that is in Minneapolis called Uncle Edgars & Uncle Hugos. I could spend hours in there just browsing. Stacks and stacks of books (mostly used) and the most knowledgeable sales people. I will have to stop there this June when I am in MN for a visit.

    there are no good book stores online in NZ, most of the books i read are quite obscure. Its actually cheaper buying them off amazon online than in the actually bookstores here even with the exhange rate and GST :shock: If fact I am going to buy couple o' books this afternoon - ta for the reminder Daniel :) yes its usually amazon unless bn has a much better deal
