Amazon maybe looking to destroy the Barns & Noble brand and business. At the moment things are not going too well for the company, even with retailers doing well some how Barns & noble was able to slip in sales. Nook sales have slipped a total of 12% do people care to read just books on a Nook anymore? Nook sales are slipping annually, with the combination of book sales and Nook sales going south B&N has its work ahead of them to reestablish the Barns and Noble brand with the public. Can the Nook compete with the Kindle and iPad mini probably not, the days of B&N being a power house maybe over and joining the ranks of Borders chains and closing up shop sooner than later.
