    One nice thing for BAMM is that no matter
    your searching you get the results
    the category your searching as well as the
    (entire site).
    This makes books come up for almost
    anything you search for. Search on "GOLF" gets golf balls
    as well as books about golf.
    This can only help
    generate additional sales. Try it you'll see.

    • Expecting nothing positive until early March. Will buy back in late Feb or so at better prices and hope for earnings spike. Good luck longs.

      • There is more logic behind a Border's buyout of
        BAMM to compete with BNBN and AMZN then Walmart buying
        BAMM. The recent news of MSFT & BNBN significantly
        distanced the 1st and 2nd place booksellers, namely BNBN
        and Borders respectively. I think Borders would try
        to expand into the traditional brik and mortal
        stores of the South rather than looking for a partner in
        some wako electronic book scheme which will probably
        take about ten years to get to and personally the
        electronic book is only good for news and mags. By merging
        with BAMM, Borders expands into the etailing business
        by consolidating the BAMM and Borders site,
        increasing sales by continuing the BAMM distribution
        agreement, and more importantly as anayst have begun to
        realize that you need a brick and mortal store plus a
        website to succeed in etailing. The continuous growth and
        expansion of BAMM only makes the merger attractive and the
        bid price higher. Consolidation is the trend of the
        etailing business see EGGS/ONSL merger.
