Barnes & Noble is a company that provides books and other media to the general public. The first bookstore opened in 1917 as a small shop, but grew exponentially over the years until it became one of America's leading bookstores. Many people flock to Barnes & Noble because of its vast selection of titles at reasonable prices.
Few companies offer as large a selection as Barnes & Noble. The company has been expanding its content to include more modern media such as ebooks, magazines, and children's books. In addition to being a retail bookseller, Barnes & Noble is also a publishing business that publishes titles from authors such as Dr. Seuss and Marvel Comics.
Barnes & Noble's stores offer a comfortable atmosphere for reading and browsing. There is always classical music playing in the background, and every store contains a children's section with an area designated just for them to play. In addition, all of Barnes & Noble's locations have areas where customers can sit down and read books from their selection of titles.
There are more than 600 Barnes & Noble locations in the United States and over 200 more spread throughout the world.
