Barnes & Noble putting on the squeeze


(Dave) #1

OpAmp is great. Up here in the SIlly Valley, there used to be
Computer Literacy Books. But then they started an on-line division
called FatBrain, and sold out to Barnes and Noble. And shortly
thereafter B&N closed the retail CLBooks outlets. Fsckers.

Portland, Oregon there’s Powell’s Technical Books - I was in there last

Powell’s must be world famous, I hear about it once a month down here
in LA. They are supposed to be strong in used books as well as
on-line orders.

Out here in Los Angeles there’s OPAMP, and there’s another one in El Segundo
(I forget the name). I haven’t been to OPAMP in a few years, but it sounds
a lot like Powell’s…they pretty much have everything on everything
technical.
