    i have, and no they're not worth it to purchase -- you can get everything you need out of them by just sitting in B&N and reading them IMO

    They're not bad. But they're all independently contracted authors, so quality may vary wildly.

    They also won't take them back if they find out you read them while in the bathroom.
