B&N CEO Parneros Defends B&N's Chances - Because He Had To - The Digital Reader

Today's trip into the Catosphere took Panzer to The Digital Reader site. There our kitty pilot found a post about Barnes and Noble bookstores.

I need to watch what happens there.
The post by The Digital Reader site owner Nate Hoffelder concerns an interview in Fortune (magazine) with Barnes and Noble's new CEO Demos Parneros. Mr. Hoffelder quotes questions and answers from the interview in which Mr. Parneros addresses questions about the number of bookstores and sales at the online Barnes and Noble site. Mr. Hoffelder doesn't agree with CEO Parneros' answer about Barnes and Noble's continuing viability as a bookstore company. Included in the post is a link to the Fortune interview. You can read the interview and make your own decision about Barnes and Noble's future.

Panzer says, "Umm ... I hope Mr. Hoffelder is wrong. This kitty sells more ebooks through Barnes and Noble's online site than through Amazon."

Note: This is a smallish-medium post. Bring a cup of tea and half a muffin for today's reading selection. If you plan to follow the link to the Fortune interview, bring another cup of tea and another muffin and a half.
