This stock has always been a steady riser for a very strong company. I don't own any stock in this company but am planning on buying some VERY soon. Just look at the chart and you can see the short dips within a steady rise. BKS will shoot up after earnings. I will get all I can afford. This is a no lose situation. Congrats to all you BKS holders. Also I have ordered lots of books through barnesandnoble.com and have found their pricing a lot better than amazon. The only reason amazon's stock is so much higher is because everyone knows how to spell amazon. Barnesandnoble.com is a lot harder to type. And people tend to spell it wrong. I'm being totally serious. I'm rooting for BKS all the way and WILL be loading up real soon.
