According to the post by Ed Nawotka, Barnes and Noble Chairman Len Riggio presented the opening speech at this year's BookExpo. The speech was centered on independent bookstores and chain bookstores co-existing. Mr. Riggio said readers are returning to physical books because they like the feel of a book and want to have a physical library. In order to accomplish this readers will need both independent and chain bookstores. He also stressed the importance of following new trends such as audio books.
|Actually, real books never went away.|
