    Don't Buy Anything From B&N

    While I was asking shipping status, off-shore customer service was rude. I ask to speak with a US based representative and was told they were going to file racial discrimination charges. When book arrived, I returned it to the local store and bought replacement for lower cost from other online provider. I will not ever again order from Barnes & Noble.
