“The Bookshop has a thousand books,
All colors, hues, and tinges,
And every cover is a door
That turns on magic hinges.”
— Nancy Byrd Turner
The Wall Street Journal reported horrible, terrible bad news Monday. Barnes and Noble Inc. will be “downsizing,” and the company will close 20 stores a year for the next 10 years.
Only the stores that are losing money, though.
Barnes and Noble’s currently operates 689 retails stores, along with a separate chain of 674 college stores.
