RV magazines pulled from Barnes and Nobels

I went by a Barnes and Nobels, and could not find any of their RV or Airstream magazines. A lady that worked there, said they had been on her "pull list". I thought she was pulling my leg.

Why would they do that? That's odd. (Can't sell them if they're not on the shelves!)

RV's? what RV's and RV magazines, no such thing. Do you see any RV magazines here, I don't?

You must be mistaken Mr. innjtown. There never was such a thing.



Just listen to yourself, come on now.

Shinny Aluminum capsules on wheels, really Mr. Innjtown,
who would believe such a thing.



What would one possibly do with such ridicules things.

You must have had a fever, that's it; you had a very high fever.

A forum you say, wild gatherings, rallies you called them?

Look Mr. Innjtown, if you continue making up these fantastical stories we will be forced to medicate you.

Come on now Mr. Innjtown, be reasonable, you know there are no such things as these so called RV's, yes?

Sedate him nurse.

"Ba ba blab la bu bu…."


That’s better Mr. Innjtown, now you are making sense. See, we can be reasonable.

I guess they needed to make shelf space for more of the hair style and celebrity watch magazines. These two very important pursuits need many more magazines.

Guess what - the best place to enjoy "Motor Home" and "Trailer Life" are at the library - one can sit and enjoy themself. I always have paper and pen with me so I can jot down any ideas. If so desired, the archived magazines are good reading also.

This is one of the reasons that more and more magazine titles are pulled from the shelves. If nobody purchases these titles, retailers will drop them. Actually, the subscription prices are dropping lake a rock for magazines dealing with "gas guzzlers". I paid $20 for three years of HOT ROD the other day. You can't print the book and mail it out at that price!

Most magazines are 90% advertising, with so little actual content that they aren't worth the cover price . You could probably read everything of interest in most magazines in ten minutes at Barnes and Nobels. I never buy from them anyway, along with Amazon they've put to many independent book stores out of business.

Then I think we all should support those RV magazines we like by subscribing to them. Cut out the middleman.

The Original Barnes & Noble
Barnes & Noble's beginnings can be traced to 1873, when Charles M. Barnes started a book business from his home in Wheaton, Illinois. In 1917, his son, William, went to New York to join G. Clifford Noble in establishing Barnes & Noble. During the height of the Great Depression, what later became the Barnes & Noble flagship store was opened on Fifth Avenue at 18th Street in New York City, where it still resides today. This store developed a worldwide reputation for excellence by serving millions of customers with its comprehensive selection of general trade books, academic titles and textbooks, and medical books.

Seems most places can be traced back to small roots.

.....that our local library doesn't have a single printed word on camping or RV's? To be fair, I haven't looked there in a couple of years for camping stuff, but not one book or periodical on the subject? Now, of course, we have a nice rodeo arena right next door (that my taxes paid for), but very few books in the library (on any subject). I guess everybody knows that McDonough, Georgia is the center of the rodeo universe, don't they? Unbelievable.
