Barnes & Noble CEO Mitchell Klipper says they'll be shutting down hundreds of stores in the coming years, but their e-reader, the Nook, will apparently stick around. Do you feel panic or elation upon hearing this news? If your answer was "elation," what gives? I just bought a Nook the other day, my first e-reader, and it's definitely making East of Eden a lot easier to hold sideways in bed (the physical book is 600 huge, heavy pages long!) but I do enjoy going to a book store and just kind of... hanging around.
