    I just heard it is closing? Is this possible?

    Depends. Who did you hear it from?
    Jordan Mills on choosing Tech:
    Its a great experience seeing them play. It was a good atmosphere. The fans stood up the whole game and never sat down. They have a great fan base.

    My g/f was there yesterday and they said that the book prices were going to go up 10%. As if they weren't expensive enough.

    Do people still buy books there? Amazon is your friend.

    They have almost everything there, as far as fan gear, on sale. Just got a polo for my 1 year old for $7. Love me some Tech Book Store.

    Big sale going on at the bookstore. Like 50% off.

    I think B&N will be in a new building, the old bookstore space will be utilized for something else.

    I was also told that very little merchandise will be sold once everything is completed.

    Sad to see the bookstore go. One of my favorite bookstore moments was going to sell back my brand new physics 201 book from this spring quarter this year only to be told they are changing books. Love it when it that happens.

    I'm in need of that photo of Joe Aillet filled to near capacity. Does anyone know where I can purchase one of those to put on my wall. I need it to be fairly large.

    I suspect that B&N won't carry as much stuff as the bookstore carried, they will carry things that move and won't be happy with items that turn once every five years. The SMU B&N bookstore (on Mockingbird Lane) has a bunch of "SMU" stuff in it.
