More bad news at B&N; Cities without bookstores

File this under ‘please don’t die’: Barnes & Noble CEO William Lynch has resigned. His replacement has not been named but the change means that, “CFO Michael Huseby would become CEO of Nook Media and president of Barnes & Noble.”

After my local B&N closed at the end of June (surprisingly because the property owner didn’t renew their lease), I’ve been driving 10 miles up the road. It’s not too far of a hike but consider this: I live in an American city that has zero general interest bookstores.
