It's weird to see the ABA (American Booksellers Association) trying to save Barnes and Noble. But at least the ABA is keeping up their record of being consistently wrong about just about everything.
I have no interest in saving B & N. They deserve to be kicked to the side. If it takes down a couple of big publishers, again--they made the consistently wrong choices.
If B & N disappeared tomorrow, I guarantee there would be a 1000 indies popping up to take their place.
If a couple of big publishers fold, I guarantee good writers will have no trouble finding new publishers.
Amazon? Amazon is a fact. We have to live with Amazon. It ain't going away.
