I'm not surprised at all. The question is which channel produces the most sales for the publisher. Since Amazon probably outsells B&N by around 2 to 1, hardly any publishers are going to get more sales from B&N than Amazon, aside from a few small publishers that are statistical oddities or chose not to publish through Amazon for some reason.
