I wonder how much longer B&N will last?
Really though what do you expect?? The e-reader has virtually destroyed bookstores. So I dont know what else they are expected to do. Of course they are going to sell more than just books. Even in BN heyday they sold stuff besides books. I have been shopping at BN since the mid 90's and they are not much different than they used to be. Its the consumer that has changed and unfortuantely theres not much BN can do to regain those lost customers. They have pretty much tried everything.
As for book prices I see tons of books at sale prices or reduced. Dont know why you think all the books are full retail.
