Nook Color Boosted Barnes & Noble’s Sales & Revenues Into Positive Territory

Newspapers, magazines, radio, TV and the “record” (CD) business have all been dramatically affected by the digital revolution that took places in the past few decades. Physical book stores have been hit especially hard by the combination of online book sales as well as ebooks.

This is despite the fact that books sales at the physical stores were down during the reported quarter.
