Ahh makes sense. Haha Barnes and Noble has a bunch of couches too. It sells coffee though. There's a mini-Starbucks in it.

Hehe I call Angus and Robertson 'Agnes and Bothersome'... because I can. Actually mostly because of the limited pool of selection. Then again I probably go there more cause to go to Borders I'd have to go to the city, or (God forbid) the western suburbs.

And huzzah for (some) non-fiction. I've read some very insightful POW books.

Mmm, I am more of a tea man myself. Then again, I prefer coffee to energy drinks like 'V' when I need to pull an all-nighter. *Sigh* Even our buildings security guard gets more sleep than I do some nights, which is not very reassuring.

Ahh, and therein lies the difference. I live on the bay, however I pass two border's store on my way to work daily. Lets just say I spend a considerable amount of my paycheck before I even reach work. :D

Oh, and a good non-fiction P.O.W style book that I have just recently read is 'The Mascot'. It's about a young Jewish boy adopted as a mascot for an SS unit. It is a very captivating read.

Ah well as long as there is still some margin of profit after 'the Borders effect' . Hmm I'm becoming curious as to what state you live in now...

And wow, I didn't think SS units were in the habit of having mascots at all. Let alone those in the form of young Jewish boys. Now I'm wondering if the Gestapo had sweet little fluffy bunnies as mascots...

Well, I am a Queenslander. I bleed maroon and all that.

And as for the SS, they changed his identity, pretending that he was a german. It is quite an amazing story.

Ah, of course, where else but Queensland.

Ah that makes errr a bit more sense then. Not their usual approach to dealing with young Jews though. I'll have to see if I can find it somewhere.
