Re: Problems with Barnes And Noble!
For what it's worth, even in the US, buying CDs from bookstores like Barnes & Noble, Borders, etc. is an invitation to get hosed. They charge up to $5 more than anyone else for new releases. Charging $18.99 for a CD is soooo 80's, but they only sell CD's because many older adults feel weird and unhip going to music stores- and they're ripe for the picking!
Since you're outside the US, I know you have slim pickings as far as where you can buy stuff from, but B&N's domestic prices are bad enough so you're already working uphill even if you walk into one of their stores to buy a CD.
