I was thinking AMZN, but agree Apple is a better idea. The stores are worth the market cap. It would put books in the mindes of people, tie the market idea to Apple more. And they could sell their Macs and everything else.
The debt would vanish over night.
AMZN and APPLE both should be thinking about it. AMZN's weak point is you cant really take a look at the books. Their market cap is HUGE compared to Barnes and Nobel.
Apple stores are nowhere. Its a better idea, only Apple products.
I think Barnes and Nobel goes up more. Especially, when shorts cover.
