Barnes and Noble Pouts Over DC Deal

In a solid logical business move today, B&N representatives feel that, and I’m paraphrasing here, if they can’t have access to the future, they’re damn well gonna get rid of their access to the past too.

Barnes and Noble today decided to clear shelves of their DC comics selections because of the publishers hesitation to offer their titles in all digital formats, to date going exclusively with the Amazon Fire Kindle. CNN quotes reps as saying;

“To sell and promote the physical book in our store showrooms and not have the e-book available for sale would undermine our promise to Barnes & Noble customers to make available any book, anywhere”

Because that makes sense. If we can’t have every book available everywhere, we’d rather not have them available anywhere. Having books only available in bookstores and for online order is A DAMN TRAVESTY. So we’re just gonna leave them at online order.
