However, if it's going to succeed as an ebook store on the basis of those books, it'll need to rethink its whole marketing strategy. I suspect that B&N is willing to let it die rather than find a way to capitalize on its history & broad customer base. B&N is invested in their own ebook format & device, and has no reason to promote a store whose best feature is many books that are readable on anything.
I agree. It's getting to the point where I think they should just stick with the Multiformat stuff and leave the big pub, DRM'd stuff to B&N. They could re-invent themselves as a DRM free bookseller and really work to promote that, that is if B&N has an interest in keeping it at all.
