One Man's Opinion

Ladies and gentlemen...........I recently had an occasion to discuss book pricing with two important segments of the book business ...Barnes and Noble, probably the country's largest retail  brick and mortar book seller and the American Library Association...the voice of  professional librarians.

At Barnes and Noble, customers can buy a  card that gives a 10% discount on in-store items plus  other benefits.     Cost  for this is $25.00 yearly.

Recent articles in PUBLISHERS WEEKLY and other trade journals  chart   the sales of the major book stores.  Barnes and Noble have or will be closing over  one hundred stores in the next few years!!

Public libraries are still doing well  (for the most part)with their circulation figures  …up!!

Impact of on-line book sales are having quite  an effect on brick and mortar


This is interesting!!!!  Let’s look at this  more next time…so..Folks please stay tuned for next edition  !!!!


Your friend.....
