Barnes & Noble fights through holiday season

  • Barnes & Noble (BKS) faces a tough challenge at its bookstores this holiday season due to the late Thanksgiving and an absence of any blockbuster titles.
  • Last year, book sellers received a healthy boost from the popularity of the Fifty Shades of Grey and Hunger Games series.
  • The good news for Barnes & Noble is that some analysts think the formidable impact of Amazon and digital sales on physical bookstores has hit a saturation point with consumers to put the book industry closer to a state of equilibrium.
