    Well, the B&N piece does offer *some* meaningful data that might be headline worthy: barely half the shelf space in a typical store actually moves books. Being kind. (65×0.75)=48.75%, actually.

    That’s a lot of space doing nothing for book sales.

      The crack about headlines is a cheap shot. This is a perfectly cromulent trade journal article about the state of play of a major player in the trade. It isn’t being splashed across the front page of the New York Times.

        cromulent (Adjective) Fine, acceptable or normal; excellent, realistic, legitimate or authentic. Etymology: A humorous neologism coined by television writer David X. Cohen; see 1996 quotation.

        So you agree the headline is a joke?
