The advantage of starting a new book from anywhere is something any bookstore wouldn’t be able to keep up without embracing the digital format. E-books has created big changes in the bookstore market. Now that E-books are very popular and easy to use, more and more bookstores are going out of business. Privately owned stores are being the most effected because they have to keep up with the growing demand of on-line books. What makes Barns & Nobles the number one on-line book store is that they sell over one Million digital books. Barns & Nobles one million digital book’s makes it hard for competitors to reach a point to where they can really compete with Barns & Nobles therefore making them the dominating bookstore chain. But even Barns & Nobles is losing money. They are suffering a net loss of about $63 million for the third quarter of 2010.
