WTF Is Wrong With The World?

So, let FLG get this straight. The Georgetown Barnes & Noble has no, zero, nada copies of St. Augustine's The City of God, but plenty South Park and Philosophy: Bigger, Longer, and More Penetrating in stock?

In these anxious times, maybe they sell out fast?

By "the Georgetown Barnes & Noble" do you mean the university bookstore, run by B&N, or a B&N that happens to be located in Georgetown?

If it's the latter, I'm not surprised. I generally find Borders to be more reliable for scholarly books. If it's the former, best guess it that it's on a lot of syllabi?

It's a B&N that happens to be located in Georgetown. I've found the same thing with Borders. However, the B&N in Georgetown is better than most about academic, especially with political, books. Make sense given the demographics I guess.

Thirty years ago, there was a lovely Catholic bookstore on the northwest corner of 36th & N.

I'm sure you could have found a copy there.

(The university forced them to move back in the late Eighties.)

So, I should blame GU?

Square foot for square foot, I think that that Barnes & Noble has the worst selection of any DC bookstore I've seen. Three floors, and nothing doing.
