    It's clearly over now, Barnes & Noble's retail head sells almost all his shares.

    The writings on the wall - Barnes and Noble will be bankrupt soon.

    Barnes & Noble Inc's retail group head Mitchell Klipper sold about two-thirds of his shares in the beleaguered retailer in the past few days, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

    Klipper, 55, who has been the chief executive of Barnes & Noble's retail group since March 2010, sold about 400,996 shares at prices ranging from $13.99 to $14.53, raising more than $5.5 million, the filing showed. ()

    As of the company's recent proxy filing dated July 29, Klipper owned 622,000 shares. He is the second-highest paid executive of the company and owns about 1 percent of its outstanding shares.

    The disclosure comes a week after the largest U.S. bookstore chain's founder and top shareholder, Leonard Riggio, suspended plans to make an offer for the retail business.Barnes & Noble Inc's retail group head Mitchell Klipper sold about two-thirds of his shares in the beleaguered retailer in the past few days, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
