Occasionally I'll get something new or go browsing a bit, locally, and when I do I make an effort to stop by SB's first and AR's second. I ordered a new copy of ''Coriolanus'' from AR not long ago, and when my used copy of the ''Republic'' became too ratty, I purchased a new one at AR. These decisions are based on a conscious desire to support local over corporate business, but sadly corporations and marketing strategies run the show at both venues before the books hit the shelf. My purchasing habits, however, are independent from what ought to be generally represented, in terms of literary value, and as far as quality representation is concerned, Border's does a comparatively better job for philosophy and the classics, even though 'better' in this context still means painfully limited. --Z</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Users/ZacharyNorwoodhttp://daviswiki.org/Users/ZacharyNorwood2009-08-11 19:23:17SunjeetBaadkarComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Users/ZacharyNorwood<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 314: </td> <td> Line 314: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2009-08-11 19:23:17'' [[nbsp]] You seem to have a distaste for Avid Reader's philosophy section.
