This is not my first time walking into a Barnes & Noble bookstore. As a member, parent, and an educator I come here to clear my head, expand my home library, learn with my sons and eavesdrop on conversations.
But, I was called by a line sister to visit this particular Barnes & Noble. Norah Jones was singing as in walked in.
“Sunrise, sunrise Looks like mornin’ in your eyes But the clocks held 9:15 for hours Sunrise, sunrise Couldn’t tempt us if it tried ‘Cause the afternoon’s already come and gone”
Opened in late November of 2016 this Barnes & Noble is a place to visit, spend, and tell a friend. It has an open concept which is easy for you to navigate. Are you interested in politics there is a section?
A children’s section with wall to wall books waiting for little fingers to walk thru and digest. Do you like comic books which are called graphic novels? Loaded with action and sophisticated vocabulary for the superhero in you.
Are you not in a rush? No problem! There are seats strategically placed for you to relax and read. Once the weather breaks there is a patio area for me to get a suntan while sipping wine.
Yes! Ladies and gentlemen this Barnes and Noble also serve wine. Along with finger foods and a full restaurant called Barnes & Noble Kitchen for business meetings, birthday planning, and grassroots braining.
