Can Barnes & Noble Save Itself?

Can Barnes & Noble Save the Book? | MIT Technology Review: "As a bibliophile and dead-tree holdout, I’m principally interested in the fate of Nook insofar as it’s a bellwether for the fate of Barnes & Noble as a whole.

I want staff picks and shelves and the physical sense of moving from one province of learning to another, not by clicking, but my moving your feet, arms, and hands. I think something real and deep is lost, when all this is lost."
