Two giants; one mighty, one fallen

Some news courtesy of Publisher’s Lunch: Barnes & Noble’s made about $7 billion this year, thanks to BN.com and their line of Nooks. Meanwhile, at the other end of the pool, Borders lost $35 million. Ow.

I hope Borders can slowly bounce back from their bankruptcy. (Wow, that’s more alliteration than I can usually handle!) I learned the Borders at Downtown Crossing was closing soon, which really saddened me. What the heck is going to go there instead? It’s huge! And while I’m looking forward to a somewhat decent sale, I don’t know where I’m going to put those books. Not a clue.
