Project Description


From its Fifth Avenue base, Barnes & Noble has revolutionized bookselling. The company was the first to discount books and advertise on television. It introduced stores with public seating, restrooms and other amenities. In its spacious children’s departments and other in-store venues, Barnes & Noble hosts community events, author readings and signings, and performances.

Barnes & Noble, Inc. launched The Barnes & Noble Bestseller List in September, 1999. Customers receive 30% off hardcover bestsellers and 30% off trade and mass market paperback bestsellers. Special Featured Titles are discounted 20% off.

They provide reviews from The New York Times Book Review, Publishers’ Weekly and Library Journal, weekly recommendations from their editors of the best new titles in more than 30 categories of books, plus Top 10 lists, bestsellers and future bestsellers. Customers also have access to excerpts, sample chapters and reader reviews, plus personal e-mail notification about books, subject areas and authors of personal interest, and commentary on the 40,000 best books in print from Reader’s Catalog.
