I have a $10 Gift Card to Borders

I'm a waiter and a few weeks ago i was waiting on this table of 17 year old girls (ugh). They left me a pretty crummy tip cash wise but they left me a $10 gift card to Borders.

I know Borders is closed but gift cards from Borders work at Barnes and Noble so i'll actually be able to use it.

Give me your best suggestions for what i should spend this gift card on. I'm a fan of Hemingway so i was hoping to pick up his collection of short stories but i'd love to hear the opinons of ze Lounge

Fitzgerald's short stories are far superior to Hemingway's.

Buy one of the girls a card and put your phone number in it, then give it to them next time you see them.

I thought Borders went out of business?

I'm in a similar situation, except I have a Barnes and Noble gift card. I honestly have no idea what to get with it.

The true question is: What on earth did you do to them to warrant being tipped with a gift card to a defunct bookstore?

Any popular book can be found online for free. Or at the library. But you might find a good book which teaches you hockey history that isn't online. They usually cost $20ish in Canada, cheaper for you though cos you're in the US.

If you're in the history section then look through, a very small chunk of non-fiction hockey books are uploaded online. These are the only ones you'd find, few more but those ones aren't worth it. There's a new book by hockey author Eric Zweig, I think it's called 120 years of Stanley Cup or something. I've been meaning to buy it.

They actually seemed to really like me. I was making them laugh the whole time they were there, gave them good service and all that stuff. They're just broke ass teenagers.
