I go there before work (And even on off days as of late since I don't like being at home wasting time all day) and I sit and read whatever catches my eye. Learning the basics of PHP at the moment, even have a notebook and junk.

What's some /biz/ related books. Skill-building ones preferred, though it doesn't have to be programming.

You really have the patience to read in a public book store? I don't see the logic.

>reading books
>2015
What, why?

>>988211
I prefer paper books as well rather than staring at a screen

not OP, but pro-tip

barnes and noble has a two week return policy

all money back

going to barnes and noble has literally made me reevaluate my position on funding public libraries

>cleaner
>more comfortable places to sit
>people are nicer
>less homeless
>cafe
>newest books
>even rly old books
>everything feels new
>2 week return policy is the same as a high-interest library book
>in libraries you can't get new books without a month on the waiting list
>>
>>988219
I mean like reading in general.


Why not just read 4chan posts instead of like The Great Gatsby.


4chan /biz/ posts and other articles and shit on the Internet will get you way further than some gay ass books.

Libraries have free WiFi though. I used to work there when I was a NEET starting my business. They never seemed to care, just warned me that the WiFi isn't secure, which I wasn't worried about. I doubt the 12 year old girl or 50 year old homeless man is on their computer hacking.

They have a shit collection of books though.

As for OP, get textbooks, not some stupid book somebody sells and gets rich off of. Don't fall for them "buy this book about how I get rich selling you this book on how to get rich" authors.

Just take a tip from George Castanza and don't read the book in the bathroom. You won't be able to return it.

That's called fraud.

Never change, /biz/
>>
>>988296

There is nothing illegal about that retard.
>>
>>988305

Intentionally abusing a return policy falls under the definition of fraud, you thieving piece of shit.
>>
>>988313

seriously retarded if you think that is fraud
>>
>>988313

While the term is called "Wardrobing" or "Return Fraud" it is not illegal anywhere in the USA.

>check to see if there were any recommendation
>who reads?
>abusing the return policy
>arguing over whether that counts as fraud
>1 suggestion for textbooks, but otherwise vague

Never change, /biz/

>>988316

It fits the defiintion of fraud, you moron - wrongful or criminal deception intended to result in financial or personal gain.

It isn't worth B&N to take some loser like
>>988231 to court over, most likely scenario is they'll ban him from the store.

Thanks anon.

It's not deception, let alone criminal deception when the store has a no questions asked returns policy you fucking dipshit.

>taking Buffett's advice on any product in 2016
He's a walking ad. If he suggests something he was most likely paid to or has some profit incentive involved.

This is the guy who claims he has 2 Coke's® with every lunch. He'd be fucking dead if this were true.
