Barnes & Noble (BKS), who until recently was unanimously shunned, is suddenly very attractive now that it's captured a full 28% of the ebook market. Number crunchers note that Nook's success, and the shuttering of the remaining Borders outlets, means Liberty's (LCAPA) $17/share offer is just 3x potential Ebitda - allowing plenty of room for bid raising. BKS +31% to $18.46.
