    • You give good reasons for living on the internet. But the fact is that when I go to almost any Barnes and Nobles store, the place is packed. The fact they are open long hours demonstrates this. Yes, getting help isn't easy. It's better in Borders. But borders is less crowded. Yes, I've had trouble ordering from B&N online, but I've also had trouble with Amazon.


      So you can give me a thousand reasons for locking my door and shopping on line, but don't like to do it; and after everything is said and done I like to go the the actual giant bookstore; and judging from the almost perpetually long lines at the one I most commonly frequent (Paramus, NJ, Rt 17 S), I'd say tons of people feel the same way.

        Then why are earnings down?

    • Boy, are you one-sided. So they pay for storefronts, and you treat this like it is a complete disadvantage. When actually having several stores in Manhatten is the best advertising you can get! Regardless of your own personal on-line shopping preference, plenty of people like stores, and many of them would prefer to browse books in a store. And last I checked, you don't get immediate gratification when buying a book on the internet. Both models can work.
