Barnes & Noble is Dead, And Len Riggio Killed it | The Digital Reader

Barnes & Noble is Dead, And Len Riggio Killed it | The Digital Reader | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
If you waterboard a Book People you might be able to get them to discuss what might happen _if_ Barnes & Noble goes bankrupt: it will be bad for old guard publishers. What you won't hear them say is that the current trend toward digital is going to make B&N obsolete as a bookseller (instead, they'll assume  static system), or that the current mismanagement renders any discussion of B&N's future moot. The Book People at Publishers Weekly, for example, continue to ignore the writing on the wall, instead reporting: During its annual meeting held Tuesday morning at its flagship store in New York City, Barnes & Noble chairman Len Riggio supported its new CEO, Demos Parneros who was named to his current role in April. During the meeting, Riggio called Parneros "the perfect fit" to help the company grow its top line and improve profits. Observing that Parneros "has brought lots of energy to the company," Riggio said he is looking forward to watching the executive over the next few years, noting that Parneros shares his vision and will revive B&N "store by store." The thing about Parneros is that in his first quarter at the head of B&N, revenues fell [...]

What the "Book People" Won't Tell You: Print is Dead | The Digital Reader

What the "Book People" Won't Tell You: Print is Dead | The Digital Reader | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
When I wrote that post on Friday about the Pod Book People who either can't or won't speak the truth about the current state of the industry, I was planning just to leave it at the level of patting myself on the back and thinking about how best to point out what the Book People weren't saying the next time I quoted and commented on a piece from, say, Publishers Weekly or The Bookseller. But an email on Saturday morning from a Book People pundit  got me thinking. That pundit thought he was a truth teller.  I disagreed, and as I laid out the reasons in my head I realized that I had a wishlist of what I wanted that pundit to say if they truly were ready to speak truth to power. I have been writing about industry trends in bits and pieces in each news story, but it has been a long while since I last pulled everything together, took a step back, and told you what I see. I can sum it up in a single sentence: The major publishers are dead because they bet against digital, which is the future. The thing about the major publishers is that they [...]
