NEW YORK Barnes & Noble reportedly plans to continue to shrink its store base.

The head of Barnes & Noble's retail group, Mitchel Klipper, says in an interview published Monday in The Wall Street Journal that the company will have 450 to 500 stores in a decade. That's down from about 689 currently.

Klipper said the chain plans to close about 20 stores a year over the period.

Barnes & Noble is the largest traditional U.S. bookstore operator. But it has been facing tough competition from online retailers and discounters. It has been focusing on its Nook tablet and e-book business for growth.

I don't know why the nook is so popular, it's crap in comparison to the kindle.

Its cheap! Although the Kindle in the UK is only about 30 more expensive than the Nook now so.

They just sell books at cover price.

I hope they don't go under or I will be forced to rely exclusively on buying books online or small book stores with a much smaller selection. Granted I have a Kindle but I do like the experience of going to a book store or a library and browsing for while before I buy something.

Maybe cheap but highly agitating.

I'm oldschool, but I enjoy actually having a book in my hands some nights when I just want to chill out in my recliner with a cold one. Doing it on a Kindle just ain't the same.

They're cool places to go, but their prices just can't beat the internet
