Barnes & Noble dieing?

People constantly, (usually traditional authors) tell me how the book industry isn’t in trouble. I say it is. Digital publishing is taking the industry by storm. Amazon Kindle is the new wave of publishing. Now here comes along further proof. The article say’s they have been having financial issues thanks to digital books.

If the book stores are being hit, then it’s not long for the publishers. I know people say, “Hey they do put my book up on the Kindle.” Yeah they do, but have you seen the price they try to sell it at? Most eBooks can’t support that high a price. Why would you pay over $10 for a book that isn’t real. It’s just pixels? The big publishers just don’t get it.
