Barnes and Noble Lays Off Buyers

Dear Author reports that Barnes and Noble has laid off essentially their entire workforce of buyers.  These are the people that actually select books to stock over the entire chain. What was not reported is that these employees, many of the very long term employees, were fired without warning and with immediate effect.  It is getting harder and harder to buy the books I love without putting money in the pocket of a company I, at best, ambivalent about.
