    (news of recent past)

    "landlords are fretting the closure of BN because of leaving an empty space no one wants

    News last week that giant book retailer Barnes & Noble is putting itself up for sale sent tremors through a commercial real estate industry that's already struggling with record-high vacancy rates.

    As a "bricks-and-mortar" business in a bookselling world that's rapidly adopting digital downloads, fears are creeping in that a new Barnes & Noble owner would seek to shed or downsize the leases of many of its 700-plus stores nationwide. And some pundits are speculating B&N and other mall-based bookselling chains ultimately could go the way of video rental and record stores decimated by digital downloading..."
  • let's put it t his way anyone interested would have made an offer at 6.25 cents. share but you wait till the after bankrupt at fire sale no one will buy at twice this price. Now this is nothing but desperation to sell his positions in an instant. He said Books in his opinion are not over yet. What happen to audiobooks at Barnes and Noble ? He convenenly leaves this out. More and more people buy audible books now than ever before. It not just Amazon, it's bookbub etc free books, very low sales books best sellers all books at penny on dollar sales. It's free pdf download sites it's Audible.
    If no one wanted to buy at 6 bucks a share who will want it at twice that. Just because he's mainly only one buying the shares or incouraging others to give appereance of raising value is a joke He's just gonna be left with more worthless shares. Can't manipulate investors like the old days we're getting smarter.
  • Barnes & Noble Refuses to Stock 'DANGEROUS' in Stores number 2 best seller. Barnes and Noble is in the censorship business now.
  • Gee, some actually do enjoy going to the mall, Barnes & Noble to read a magazine, grab a coffee, perhaps buy a book, maybe pick up a gift... Sad day when and if Barnes and Noble stores are no longer around, IMO
  • Given the news of a 60% upside on going private, why wouldn't everyone buy it now, then vote to take it private, thus virtually guaranteeing a 60% payday. What am I missing?
  • my prediction. BN will not never sell and no one will want it either.
  • This past week we had 2 larger institutions dispose of their shares maybe at lost Sandell did not want to take his massive lost from his bad decision/investment so instead of closing his position today he feels it's better to manipulate novice investors after all it's better you get left holding the bag then him millionaires and billionaires don't get there by having feelings for you or environment just the way it is, my opinion.
  • BN has had 5 new CEOs 9 new Director's maybe they need a new owner. OMG! Like who? God! (sorry if I'm not exactly accurate with the numbers)
  • Sandell made a mistake buying into a failing company now trying to manipulate stock. good money after bad money
  • this isn't like the thought wasn't thought of before. by BN themselves. This is not a new idea and it's only a wish no different than many of you on this board have already said.
  • look up Sandells History it looks like he tried this before, didn't work.
  • Stocks have been dropping forever. Brick and Mortars stores have been closing. It even reached to below $6.50. Why buy at $12 when there's no value. They're going to hype the price up and sell off. There will be a lot of losers caught in this fake hype!
  • Answer - because no one is buying books not even using BN gift cards given to them.
  • unused gift cards why less losses than expected. OMG! Can't even give paper books, magazine or BN merchandise away. Why? Too many people care about the future of the trees rainforest earth and children.
  • BF property? I was near one no one else was. this is a dying poluted beach. Malls are closing at a record pace.
  • so many ocillators and graphs not one of them takes into affect gift cards and lack of interest in them and paper books.
  • Sandell believes no one wants to buy the milk( books )so someone will want to buy the cow (company). Whast kind of thinking is that. Sandell why don't you buy it ?
  • there's no sales talk it's Sandell only one talking.
