Same here, but I told myself to look for an AR book instead.

Borders has a more casual laid back feel to it, while Barnes and Nobles focuses more on a professional bookstore look. At least that's what my friends and I have agreed upon.
It's okay to have your inner geek come out sometimes. It's healthy.

I agree with you. Personally, I don't like B&N, but I agree with you. The only time I've seen a bunch of people sitting in the manga isle was when I went to get the fifth Harry Potter book at the midnight release.

Borders is more fun in general, though. I talk to everybody there and I think it's easier to navigate.


Thanks for reading!

School: 99.9% sure they wont have manga.

Library: 50% sure they wont have manga.

But then again the last time I went to the library was about 6 years ago =P

My library does have manga, but only very few and far between unfortunately

Which is why I can never get any from there that often and end up having to buy them all instead

You can always request some titles. Libraries want to know what their readers want to read.

I live in England and I think most people will tell you it's rare to find manga anywhere let alone in a library! There was like one Bleach manga in my school library once but I haven't seen it since. Maybe I was dreaming I'm definate my local library doesn't have any since I went a couple of weeks ago.
