      I dunno about this, think about where your hands go while on the toilet then think about all those other hands touching those cookbooks.

        The book itself is one of the last to go 3-4 days until close of Borders, Winchester, VA. The book was up to 60% off yesterday.

          would someone who has been there tell us if the books are in a lounge-y area?

            The cookbooks are in the bathroom. Ko is smaller then your average suburban living room. There is no lounge area.

          I can just see it -- someone desperate to get into the john, and someone else happily sitting there, deep into a good cookbook!
