Just in time for beach reading, Barnes & Noble is releasing a new Nook with a 7.8-inch screen and waterproof design. Barnes & Noble has pumped the brakes on its Nook e-readers in the past few years, but it continues to release new devices sporadically. Last fall, it unveiled the Nook Tablet 10.1 and a companion keyboard that converts it into a makeshift laptop.
Barnes & Noble’s e-reader was more than just a rare competitor to Amazon’s steamrolling Kindle, it was a nice device with an interesting design — and one of the first in its class to now standard technologies like front lighting. Anyway, it’s clear that the Nook division ultimately wasn’t the sort of exit strategy Barnes & Noble was hoping for (no one, it seemed, could predict Amazon), but it continues to release products here and there, including the bigger, better Nook GlowLight Plus. The new reader maintains the classic Nook soft touch style, coupled with a considerably larger 7.8 inch screen featuring the titular front lighting.
New NOOK GlowLight Plus® eReader has Larger Screen to Make Reading Easier, and Waterproof Design for Worry-Free Summer Reading Anywhere
For the past few years, Arden Fair has become one of the quietly hippest art showcases in town, with dancers, muralists, musicians and spontaneous customers who may bust a move with the slightest encouragement among the practitioners. “When I came on board two years ago as marketing manager, Arden Fair had already been working at bringing the local community and local arts together at events like this,” says Nathan Spradlin, who works for the mall’s managing company, Macerich. “For most of the events at Arden Fair, there was a deliberate sense of ether you come by and see it or it’s gone, meaning they’d last only one day,” he says.

Barnes & Noble, Inc. (BKS), the world’s largest retail bookseller, named Christopher Donovan from Ayer Shirley Regional High School in Ayer, Massachusetts, the 2019 winner of the national My Favorite Teacher Contest, earning him the title of Barnes & Noble National Teacher of the Year. Nominated by his former student, Brooklynne Mitchell-Arno, Mr. Donovan was chosen out of thousands of entries from students around the country. “We are committed to recognizing educators for their important work all year round, and this contest gives us a chance to hear from students around the country about the teachers that make a difference in their lives,” said Tracy Vidakovich, Vice President, Business Development for Barnes & Noble.
The ratings on four principal and interest (P&I) classes, Cl. D, Cl. E, Cl. H and Cl. J, were affirmed because the ratings are consistent with expected recovery of principal and interest from specially serviced loans as well as losses from previously liquidated loans. Nine loans representing 98% of the pool are currently in special servicing and interest shortfalls have reached Cl. E. The ratings on two P&I classes, Cl. F and Cl. G were downgraded due to higher anticipated losses from specially serviced loans.

Barnes & Noble, Inc. (BKS), the world’s largest retail bookseller, today announced the return of its seasonal Kids’ Book Hangout in stores nationwide on Saturday, May 18 at 2 PM. The customer-favorite event is a nationwide program for young readers to celebrate reading with exciting new books and fun games and activities designed toward readers in grades two through six. This spring Kids’ Book Hangout features an introduction to four recommended books, and free giveaways, while supplies last. “Our Kids’ Book Hangouts have brought tens of thousands of kids together across the country to discover new books and celebrate reading, which is why we’re so pleased to announce this spring edition of the event,” said Stephanie Fryling, Vice President of Merchandising, Children’s Books at Barnes & Noble.
Books cover shelves but also are hung on wall-mounted shelves on columns and pillars throughout the store to maximize inventory. While Barnes & Noble rolled out a prototype store with a full-service restaurant and bar in Ashburn’s One Loudoun development in 2017, the stores going forward are more likely to focus on the limited-service cafe model of food and beverage offerings, Morabito said. Barnes & Noble is looking to expand the quick-service food offerings at its cafes, he added. Barnes & Noble is always looking for more opportunities in the D.C. region and beyond, though Morabito wouldn’t say whether there are any more planned for the region, including in the District proper, at this time.

Customers with a NOOK tablet or the NOOK Reading App can order the report to be downloaded to their NOOK Library.

Big, bad Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) is at it again. Striving to control everything in your home and life, in an effort to boost its results and ultimately Amazon stock, it's reportedly looking to rival Roku's (NASDAQ:ROKU) free ad-supported streaming services. Naturally, Roku stock took a small dive on the news, which was reported on Apr 3. Source: Shutterstock InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsIf you own Roku stock, don't let Jeff Bezos scare you into selling your stock. Amazon has huge ambitions, I'll grant you, but Roku has something Amazon doesn't: authenticity. * 10 Medical Marijuana Stocks to Cure Your Portfolio ROKU is a pure-play streaming business that manufactures streaming players and has its own operating system that's integrated into Roku TVs which are built by various TV manufacturers who license the technology. ROKU also offers ad-supported and ad-free content through the Roku Channel. In a nutshell, it has three revenue streams: the sale of players, licensing fees, and advertising and subscription fees. It has two business segments: Player and Platform. That's it. That's all. It doesn't sell video doorbells or personal assistants or books or anything else that's unrelated to video streaming. When investors buy Roku stock, they know what they're getting. ROKU might not have the financial might of Amazon, but it isn't straying too far from its stated business model. There's a lot to be said for businesses that stick to their knitting. They generally can do a better job of focusing on the task at hand. Why Shouldn't the Owners of Roku Stock Fear Amazon?One only has to look at the retail industry to see that, despite Amazon's best efforts, brick-and-mortar retailers are alive and well in an omnichannel world.Consider this headline from February 2013: "Best Buy is the Newest Amazon Showroom -- How can a Retailer Battle "Showrooming?""The top 2 stores that lost the most customers due to this trend in 2012 were Best Buy and Walmart reflecting 46% of showroomers," stated the article. "Other stores impacted are Target, Home Depot, Lowes and Barnes and Noble."Well, since that article was written, Best Buy (NYSE:BBY) and Walmart (NYSE:WMT) have seen their stocks appreciate by 40% and 350% respectively. The other stocks on the list, besides Barnes & Noble (NYSE:BKS), have also done well. Each of these companies adapted to the competitive threats faced by Amazon and managed to thrive in a business environment that was seemingly stacked against them. ROKU won't be different. It can't worry about what Jeff Bezos is doing to disrupt its business. Although it doesn't hurt to remain informed about what others in your industry are doing, ROKU has got to lead the streaming industry into the future proactively. That is, it has to look ahead and not in the rearview mirror.As Wayne Gretzky used to say, "You go where the puck is going to be, not where it is at that moment."It's called vision, and I happen to think that Roku's got plenty of it. What I Think About Roku StockI've been a ROKU believer since late 2017, not too long after ROKU stock went public at $14 a share. Since then, Roku Inc stock has had its ups and downs, none bigger than its 63% decline in the final quarter of 2018. In December, I reiterated my belief that ROKU would be a very profitable company someday, especially if it continues to grow its active accounts and viewing hours. It's that simple. "However, if Roku's assertion that all TV will be streamed and so too will TV advertising, a prediction I tend to agree with (proves accurate). the future price of its stock will be much higher than $77.57," I wrote in an article published on Dec. 3. "But first Roku has to make a fiscal profit. When it does that, the sky's the limit," I added.I still believe that. So, how did Roku stock do in 2018 in terms of active accounts and viewing hours?Active accounts increased by 40% to 27.1 million, while the average active account viewed 885.61 hours in 2018, 15.5% higher than a year earlier. As a result, ROKU's average revenue per user (ARPU) increased by 330.4% from $4.17 to $17.95. That's quite a boost. On the bottom line, ROKU lost $8.9 million on $742.5 million in revenue. In 2019, it expects its sales to go over $1 billion. In 2018, it had adjusted EBITDA of $33 million, up significantly from the year before. In 2019, it expects to break even on EBITDA as it continues to add new employees to manage its growth in the U.S. and internationally. The Bottom Line on Roku StockAll I can say about Amazon is, "bring it on." Roku's more than ready to meet the challenge. If the markets keep moving higher in 2019 (a big if), I could see Roku stock flirting with $80, or even $100, despite more than doubling in price year to date, as of midday on Apr. 5.. But it's got to keep its eye on the ball and keep growing those two figures I mentioned. That's the key to the success of Roku stock. At the time of this writing Will Ashworth did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
