just have to comment on the story re: why he sold Barnes & Noble stock.....the comparison, for me is apples and oranges. Barnes & Noble is a retail outlet, complete with armchairs, coffee and ambience. is simply cheaper books. period.

should the economy continue to do its slow slide into a unnamed depression, guess what? people are going to hang out in bookstores! probably instead of whatever more expensive amusements.

while I don't disagree with the premise of the article, it is simplistic in it's premise. just wanted to comment.....
