eh at online coupons.

What Barnes and Noble should do is have print out coupons for half off of paperbacks.

Those would come in handy since newer re-release paperbacks cost like 17 to 20 bucks just for one book. Especially newer paperbacks for Stephen King books.

Oh, for the days when (new-release!) paperbacks cost 95 cents or $1.25. That was only 45 years ago! (I'm looking at my Robin Cook, Stephen King, and Crichton vintage paperbacks now and see those prices, eg 'The Andromeda Strain, $1.25, printed in 1971). And in those intervening years, book costs have gone up TWENTY times??!! I don't think so.

As recently as 1985, new-release hardbacks were $9.95 or $10.95. Now, what, $35 to $40 for a new-release hardback? And paper quality has become so cheap. You're getting mostly pulp in that hardback now, whereas 20 or 30 years ago, your $12 got you a quaity, stiched binding, acid-free paper which wouldn't yellow in 2 years, and a good cloth cover. Now, you get shit (glued binding, cardboard, paper binding, and newspaper-quality pulp paper).

well my opinion, i think 14 to even 20 bucks for a newer re-release paperback whether its a Stephen King book at Barnes and Noble, its expensive.

I really do think Barnes and Noble should have better coupons for paperbacks. At least the Wheel of Time books are still in the 6.99 or 7.99 range

I aint gonna waste 20 bucks on one frikkin paperback whether its a Stephen King book or any book thats in those tall stretched out re-release paperbacks.

What's worse is the price for one single magazine issue at Barnes and Noble. 14 to even 20 bucks especially on those Retro Gamer videogame magazine issues.

Barnes & Noble doesn't set the price on those books. It's set by the publisher.

If they gave everyone who could print out a coupon 50% off of all paperbacks, they'd lose their asses. The store's discount on those books is probably only about 40% off of cover price.

And the last thing B&N needs to do right now is hemorrhage money.

The margins on books are already terrible. It's why over half of the floor space in B&N is stuff that isn't books.

You can go buy a 17.99 Stephen King paperback for me. That would be great
