Re: Barnes & Nobel shrinking
We have five major stores in a fifteen mile radius. Two Barnes and Noble, two Joseph-Beth Booksellers and a Half-Price Books.
I buy books mainly on my e-reader. Have been to the bookstore probably twice in the last year. So getting rid of one or two doesn't really affect me.
