What's your favorite online store?
It used to be Borders.com. Sigh... Using a coupon with my 10% Borders Rewards Plus discount along with free shipping, I'd get a $15 book delivered to my door for 8 bucks. Perhaps I contributed to their bankruptcy? So now I'm back to shopping Amazon to support my book habit.
