Barnes & Noble Closes eBook Store

Proprietary eBooks never took off, and the announcement by Barnes & Noble that it would shut down its eBook store is just one result of that.

Some history...

Sorry, those are not all items "that I already own", "in my pocket".

The title of this thread are going to make people think Fictionwise has been closed and when they find out it's not, they will go after you for this cruel joke.

Then why put it here where it will be seen and get you in trouble? The topic is what is the problem. It really needs to be changed.

I thought I'd missed something and went searching on here and with Google. So, I don't get it. Fictionwise is still up and B & N has a "coming this summer" page. What is this post about that I missed?

Edit: just saw the last posts

Send a mesage to a Moderator? With a new title requst as part of it?

I also had this horrified feeling of all my hopes crashing to the ground when I first read the title so it does need a quick over haul before you get tarred & feathered.

On the other hand, it is nice to see the picture Nate posted of the link because that is promising news and I'm glad you found it.

Why don't you just lighten up for a pico second. It was done in jest, and any normal to average person is going to pick up on that in seconds.

Jeez, but you're taking this way too seriously by far.

#@%$ !!! I just bought 3 subscriptions from them!

OK, I've seen the rest of the thread, so I'm just kidding.

Moejoe, you need to kick it up a notch or they're going to kick you out of Melodrama City.
