Just reading that B&N is closing about 1/3 of their stores. They claim the electronic books sales are hurting them! That's a bit hard to understand since they sell them and presumably profit from those sales. My local B&N is so crowded on the weekends that you can barely find a place to park. This sounds more like putting people out of work to sqeeze the profits out of the company and move to entirely on-line sales. Simply making more money (i.e. greed) rather than going out of business.
