B&N reports their share of ebook market exceeds their share of print books, in some segments by a lot. (Romance books in particular.)
They also see *less* players in ebook retailing; as few as 3 or 4.

It seems they are in fact making good progress in moving to digital and their vision is paying off but the question is still whether or not they have to resources to carry it out fully.
I suspect they do. I know they have been dinged a couple of times by the Press in recent days. But I think they are still very much the strongest Brick and Mortar book retailer out there and probably the second strongest ebook retailer.
