“I received a B&N giftcard, and so I was obliged to use B&N to make a purchase. I bought three books on November 24. It's now December 3, and I still have not received the books. The original delivery date was November 29; that then changed to Dec. 2. It appears now, from tracking info, that I will not get the books until Dec. 4.
I guess I'm spoiled by Amazon.com, but I just don't see how B&N can compete when its delivery (by comparison) is glacially slow--especially since its prices are no better than Amazon. I even get book deliveries from third-party sellers (using parcel post) on Amazon more quickly.”
