It's the lowest price I've seen for this Seasons 1 - 20 Episode Guide for The Simpsons.

1200 pages and 8.8 pounds. $12.99

FREE shipping on orders OVER $25 . . . or you (1st time buyers) may choose to enroll in a b&n Membership 2-month trial that gets you FREE Express Shipping (no minimum order). Appears to work similar to Amazon Prime. Just remember to log-in an cancel before your trial is up so that you aren't charged the $25 annual fee.

Just proceed to checkout with the single item (2 perhaps) in your cart and the FREE trial membership should present itself and qualify you for the FREE shipping.

Bought this from BN a few months ago (it's been at this bargain price for a while). The book is huge and full of awesome, including the best quotes from each episode, every song lyric, opening blackboard writing, etc. A great purchase for any Simpson fan.

Yeah. At this price I seriously want it so badly. Dammit, instore pick up shows it is $25.

Edit: http://consumerist.c...ts-own-website/
Yes, this is just as bad as Toysrus and worse. Apparently you could(?) have a cashier order something off the website for you and have them ship it to your home instead of getting the freakin' price match right there saving the company on shipping and packing costs.

I was very disappointed with this. I thought there would be insider information in it but pretty much if youve seen the episode then you know everything that is in this book. I spent about $20 for mine and wish I hadnt. The only way this would be worth picking up IMO is if you just collect anything and everything The Simpsons related. Otherwise, save your money for something with more to offer.

I had the first guide that covered the first 8 seasons but when they started releasing them every few years i figured i'd wait for a more completed collected edition. That wait is now over & cheaper then i bought the original first guide.
Thanks TC.

I bought this for a massive Simpsons fan and longtime friend, and he's thanked me no less than half a dozen times since giving it to him last Christmas. I found this in store for $25, which was already heavily marked down from the $100 or $125 it originally was sold for. Even at $50 I considered picking it up for him.

It's a compendium of information over twenty seasons. He says he reads about one episode a day and he still has several more to go through, a year after giving it to him. It's a huge amount of great information and goes further than your post suggests.

At $12.50 even a casual Simpsons fan would be overjoyed to have this. It looks great, is a high quality tome, and chronicles arguably one of the best shows to ever exist.

Great price for an awesome simpsons book that both hardcore and casual fans will enjoy. I got mine for $15 last summer from a local B&N. Sure I would have never even considered paying $100+ for this but for $10-$20 this book is a steal.

It seems a very nice deal. I bought it today, mostly because I am a big Simpsons fan.

This can be stacked (by this I mean you can find super nice deals inside) with their clearance (http://www.barnesand...-Sale/379003385) - after sale Clearance.

Btw, have any of you found more coupons (codes or in-store coupons) for Barnes and Noble?I search my favorite coupon websites, but haven't found any (besides the clearance):

It's an episode guide. It's your fault for assuming it'd be something it wasn't advertised as.

Thanks OP. I still have the first guide for the first eight seasons (still my favorite), and this looks like a good time to get caught up.
