BKS has reinvented itself; more child friendly, audio friendly, and geekfiendly and...let's face it...Boomers like bookstores. Often support SBUKs' niches to get the coffee angle.

When the future of Nook is decided it will help. Lease renewal opprtunites to better match needs. Local bookstores are still appreciated. Undervalued.

I doubt the company's ability to compete with Amazon. As much as I enjoy the atmosphere of the brick and mortar institution, I prefer the prices (and inventory) of the online retailer. In the end I receive the same product.

I like company's flexibility and management the of the company. However, they're operating in defeated industry, and will find themselves against tough competition when and if they switch completely to online retail. Also, their shift to toys and games makes me scratch my head. There are reasons besides their overall financial performance as to why this company is simply doomed to fail.

Whatever way they operate and whoever they partner with, they won' be able to outsell Amazon or Apple in the e-book and music retail space. Their competition does exactly what they do without forcing the customer to come into stores. Both of their competitors also have their own e-platform and tablet device. While I will admit the Samsung partnership is a smart move, it isn't enough to make BKS an attractive investment under the circumstances. They have absolutely no economic moat and I see this company following Borders very soon.

I buy a ton of books, but the only time I ever get them from Barnes & Noble is when someone gives me a gift card. And even then, I order online rather than walking into an actual store. Books and CDs and DVDs are basically the easiest things to buy online--much easier than clothes or shoes--so as far as companies with brick & mortar stores go, one that sells only books and CDs and DVDs seems doomed to failure. Frankly I can't believe I hadn't red-thumbed BKS a long time ago.

So very cheap. If they separate the bookstore from Nook, this stock could move.

You don't need to see a book in person before ordering it online. Stick a fork in it. It's done.

Short. Revs down 7%. NOOK appears to be the “blackberry” of tablets to me. They have negative EBIT and a heafty interest expense and issued a bunch more stock.

Amazon will CRUSH this last bookstore, and it's venture w/ Microsoft will have proven a failure by then (2-3 Years)

Nook, in its most recent iteration, was a lodestone around B and B's neck. Trying to compete in a new segment against a competitor playing to its strengths (Amazon) was unfortunate strategically. Yes, the Borders close still makes things looked scary for big physical book stores. However, with the removal of the Nook lodestone B and B has the opportunity to do something like make its stores smaller and open more of them with the pursuit of a "local bookstore" customer experience in mind.
