If B&N were to go under, that doesn't kill the market for paper books. Grocery stores and drug stores have some books, and stores like Target have small book sections. I think we'd see smaller stores open up, like B. Dalton or Waldenbooks. They could probably open up pretty quickly, they don't need a big space in malls. They likely would have strong motivation to open up quickly, because without B&N, the paper book market would be pretty seriously under served. Independent stores would probably have more of a share of the market than they have now.
