|Anyone else trying to figure out which titles are on Konata's bed?|
First of all, I should warn folks that Barnes & Nobles' brick and mortar stores are no longer a sure bet, as they keep shutting down shops across the country. I'm pretty sure I'm losing mine very soon since it doesn't get far enough business. So if you have one in your area, please support it!

Also, they have a good selection of Japanese authors in stock and in English. I bought the Paprika novel from them! And it was on sale! So if you're looking for a Haruki Murakami novel that's been eluding you, Powell's probably has it.
As for online, you can't go wrong with eBay. I really only buy manga from eBay if the title/series is hideously out of print and expensive to buy otherwise. There are a lot of folks on eBay who sell their manga in bulk and sometimes the best deal is buying manga in bulk, not each volume individually. I scored so much Tokypop-published OOP Erica Sakurazawa manga that way! I would never buy new titles from eBay, FYI. There are enough shops that can sell me new unread copies of the latest titles, usually at a much better price than an eBay vendor can offer.
Again, thank you, OASG, for the great list! Already looking forward to the 2015 edition :3
