Interesting article. Hopefully this will mean a rise in e-book sales. Sad about the bricks and mortar stores though Sad

I was reading today about how B&N needs to become a digital company, not  merely a bookseller. We'll see what happens... it's gonna be interesting!

While the digital revolution has been great for all of us, I hope it doesn't push all the bookstores out the way digital music did with music stores. I still love walking into a bookstore and being surrounding by all those titles.

Exactly. The question is if the stores are smart enough to turn themselves into destination spots, which record stores weren't able to do. We have a couple local indies who host a lot of author events and the like -- but I think they could both be doing more.
