Was wondering which of these american stores is better for us Canadians to order from, taking into consideration shipping, customs, etc?
Would appreciate any suggestions anyone could offer.

Barnes and Nobles ship from a Canadian warehouse so no shopping fee, but there is GST and the prices can be higher. But shipping is lower.

Amazon, lower prices but shipping cost is 4.00 per shipment and 2.00 per item. So it depends.

Both are fast.

... and no customs charges for either one.

Unless there are deals, coupons, or gift certificates though, you'd be better off walking to the nearest B&M because it will not be cost-effective buying at full price from the US etailers.
