    Book fine, service horrible

    Renting from B&N is a nightmare.
    Six telephone calls, three-plus hours on hold, late charges, an e-mail confirming that the book had been received and late charges reversed. A new e-mail saying they don't have the book, more late charges and telephone calls. "Customer service" (I use the term loosely) saying they can't confirm that a confirmation of receipt was sent. Plus they refused my offer to forward the confirmation of receipt e-mail back to them. I give up. I'm paying for the book because I can't keep doing this. It just isn't worth my time and energy any more. Will never, never, never rent from B&N again.
