This does not mean the end of the bricks-and-mortar bookselling business, however, and Barnes & Noble is in a good position to consolidate its market share. Liberty Media’s investment in B&N is a bigger puzzle: Are they in it for the long run, simply looking for a short-term win, or intrigued by the e-delivery potential of the Nook?
