I admit it - I'm a SF fan, and lately Books a Million has been satisfying my desires by having new books from new and midlist authors readily available without a special order. The staff has proven firendly and knowledgable and whoever is doing the buying for the chain apparently knows their areas and their demographics.

PROS: Good location, good staff
CONS: Not that conducive to browsing

Update: A bit over two years later, Books-a-Million has dropped the ball as badly as Barnes and Noble. In fact, I'd say they lost their one distinguishing edge - stocking new or mid-list authors without a special order.
If I have to special order, why on Earth don't I go to the website? Or Amazon? Its cheaper and frequently faster. As it is, I cannot recommed this store any more.

The employees are helpful and the store is considerablely quiet. Its also a place for kids and adults alike. Kids can be entertained with toys, movies, or books. Wide range of magazines to choice from. Love their huge markdown tables. Big, comfortable chairs. But more seating is needed.
