The problem B&N face is that there just isn't really much interaction between pBook sales and eBook sales. It is the same book wherever you buy it from. There is no discount for buying a B&N eBook from a B&N store, no way to buy a pBook and get the eBook free or cheap.
Other than selling hardware (which they lose money on) and accessories, what actual link is there between B&N the book store and Nook.com the eBook store?
