March 2013 NYC Bookstore Events

Gregg Allman Richard Hell

Barnes & Noble Inc.’s founder and chairman, Leonard Riggio, told the bookstore chain he is interested in buying its consumer business and spinning out the unit that makes the Nook tablet, said a person familiar with the matter.

Barnes & Noble is scheduled to report its fiscal third- quarter earnings on Thursday. The company’s shares have lost more than half their value in five years, closing at $13.51 on Feb. 22. The Standard & Poor’s 500 Stock index gained 12 percent in the same period. [Bloomberg]
