Worst in Atlanta

Having been there for no particular reason three times in the past four days, I feel like I can speak with some authority when I say that the Borders on Peachtree in South Buckhead (right next to the highway) is the worst bookstore in all of Atlanta if, you know, you actually want books. Because it doesn’t have any.

    Wow… harsh words about my neighborhood Borders! I’ve had pretty good luck there. And it’s good for hanging out.

    Dan – agreed. I have had no luck there or with the one on Ponce. And when I walk into B&N at Tech Square they have 8 million copies of whatever I was looking for.

    You can search inventory in the Borders site… http://www.bordersstores.com

    Yeah, I’ve bought about 5 books there. And consumed untold amounts of hot chocolate when I study there.

    Amber – I agree that it’s good for hanging out. A large portion of my qualifier studying happened there. But it was lacking in Hobbes’ ‘Leviathan,’ two popular Nick Hornby novels, and countless other staples to a complete book store. And there’s a very extensive B&N up the street. However, the Borders does have a very good DVD collection and a sizeable coffeeshop…

    Yes, you can check the inventory of other stores as well once you’re in the store. But if you’re someone like me (“oh crap- forgot to buy the gift- must get asap”)it is of no help.

    See, I’m much more of a browser and wanderer. I don’t really go to the bookstore actually looking for a particular book. I just sort of browse until I find something that looks interesting…
