Krysta continues her discussion on the possibility of Amazon eventually signing the death warrant of Barnes and Noble.
I’ve been giving this more thought and while my Barnes and Noble experiences haven’t always been stellar, there is value in having actual, physical bookstores in areas that wouldn’t have any but for Barnes and Noble. I am blessed to be in an area where I have options other than Barnes and Noble, but not everyone does.
I don’t want to absolve Barnes and Noble of any responsibility for their own demise but as a logical consistency, I should shop much less at Amazon for the same reasons I try to avoid Walmart.
Still mulling this thing over, but it’s worth considering what types of business practices we want to support with our dollars.
