Barnes and Noble used to have a 30 day return policy and many - myself included - used to read large parts of books or most of the books, return them and start the whole process over. It's a lot harder with their 14 day limit. I think I'm going to return WRTH for a full credit as I'm not impressed whatsoever. I have WRTHs from the 1970s and 1980s and they are twice as large as today's books. Seems like they took a cleaver to the book.
What's amazing to me is WRTH is still in business but Passport to World Band is out of business. I think the wrong company ceased publishing.
I can see why they could not to continue publishing if people are treating Barnes and Noble like a lending library. A 14 day return is even too generous with books, do you expect to find the binding defective and want a return?
I find it ironic that in the same posting we can be bemoaning the loss of publishers of relevant books and magazines yet we do not want those publishers and authors to earn any profit off of what they sell because we will read it and return it for full credit.
