Anyway, the FLOUNCE OF ANNOYANCE comes in here: on the way out, I noticed that 1) the 3rd book in that worthless dragon cycle thing by Christopher Paolini had it's own table right near the front; and 2) RIGHT next to the door was a table with hardcover editions of all of the Stephenie Meyer books.
...and Nation is relegated to a 12-book box display along the wall of the escalator.
Barnes & Noble, UR DOIN' IT WRONG.
OK, I realize it's not all B&N's doing, but still. Why? WHYYYYYYY do two crappy book cycles get their own fancy tables near the front door, and the newest book by a man who's the top-selling adult fiction author in the UK and who's sold over 60 million books (I believe is the last known figure) relegated to a little box display?
It just ain't right.
