I don't think that's true. Last time I was in a B&N, I saw jigsaw puzzles, stuffed animals and other toys, board games, stationary, greeting cards, wrapping paper, gift-y things like wall plaques, desk items and the like... not to mention their coffee shop/baked goods area.

Not to mention that B&N stores sell Nook e-book readers. When I go to the local B&N store, they're always promoting the Nook in their front window and displays.

Indigo in Canada, B&N's local version, has been doing the same.

Briefly, any book stores that survive are having to transition from selling books only to selling anything book-related, whether items or experences.

Re: TNG: The Stuff of Dreams

Some of those stores are still managing to make a go of it with the actual books, I'm noticing. Although the experiences of weekly workshops in those bookstores is certainly helping matters in several instances.
