    "It's easy to forget that Amazon even has competitors these days, but Barnes & Noble is still my go-to. I read a lot of novels, and love having bookshelves filled with books. B&N seems to send me coupons all the time, and if you're lucky enough to still have a physical B&N in your area, you can buy online and often go pick up the book to skip the wait on shipping. Great selection as well."

      "This book is an absolute blast to read, a real classic in the creepy/horror category. I remember reading this for a book report when I was younger and procrastinating for weeks because I thought I would be bored to death by it. I remember sluggishly walking to my back porch with it in hand ready to be bored but 3 hours later I was still out there reading away and had to be told to stop by my mom so I could eat dinner before it got cold. I finished it the next day and wrote up a report on it and my teacher recommended a bunch of other similar books that I read following this, so this was the book that really sparked my interest in reading, would definitely recommend to anyone ove rthe age of 13 or so."

      "This book had a lot of sketches, which found odd, considering that this was supposed to be a novel. Turns out, it was just as well, because the sketches were the best part of The unbearable lightness of being. I found it pretentious and it seemed to me the author was more pushing an agenda cloaked within a novel."
