Barnes & Noble said today that it may spin off the business for its Nook e-reader, the most serious competition for Amazon's Kindle. In a news release about holiday sales, CEO William Lynch said the company wants to “unlock" the value of the Nook franchise. “We have a large and growing installed base of millions of satisfied customers buying digital content from us, and we have a NOOK business that's growing rapidly year-over-year and should be approximately $1.5 billion in comparable sales this fiscal year.

The life of an independent bookstore owner is perilous these days. Having to fend off deadly competition from giant Barnes & Noble, online merchants such as Amazon, and big box stores including Target and Walmart. Still, even with that cut-throat atmosphere, you wouldn't imagine that an indie owner could end up near the top of the Central Intelligence Agency. Until Avril D. Haines came along. Haines, the former co-owner of Adrian's Book Cafe in Baltimore's Fells Point neighborhood, has been named CIA deputy director, the number two position in the spy agency, The Baltimore Sun's John Fritze notes.

Donna's coffee is out; Starbucks is in. The pale wood and vibrant purples have been replaced by Barnes & Noble's trademark dark bookshelves. Two years after the popular Bibelot bookstore chain closed, the nation's largest bookseller has moved into the homegrown retailer's former flagship in Pikesville. Despite the differences with Bibelot, once a popular neighborhood institution, the new Barnes & Noble store occupying the vast space in the Festival at Woodholme expects to win over once-loyal customers.

Barnes & Noble College Booksellers Superstore will open in The Fitzgerald at UB Midtown apartment tower under construction near the University of Baltimore, university officials said yesterday. The 20,000-square-foot store, slated to open in fall 2010, will include a Starbucks-branded cafe and sections for University of Baltimore textbook sales. It will be similar to a Barnes & Noble in Charles Village near the Homewood campus of the Johns Hopkins University. The lead developer, the Bozzuto Group, started building the 275-unit market-rate apartment project in October on a university-owned site at West Mount Royal Avenue and Oliver Street and plans to complete the residential portion by spring 2011.

Dozens of books sat stacked on gleaming hardwood floors yesterday at the new Barnes & Noble at the Inner Harbor, as employees sorted titles and filled shelves. Plastic still covered the cushioned armchairs. And 55,000 compact discs and cassettes had yet to be stocked.But otherwise, downtown's first mega-bookstore appeared ready for its Oct. 6 premiere as the Power Plant's third major tenant. Fish swam in a 3,000-gallon freshwater tropical tank built into a wall; cafe counter workers served up lattes and tropical smoothies during a practice run, and two massive copper smokestacks -- from the days when the plant powered city streetcars -- rose through the store's two levels.

Not long ago, big booksellers in downtown Baltimore seemed destined to go the way of Hutzler Bros., Hochschild Kohn and Stewart's, the department stores that once reigned over Howard Street. The "city that reads" lost two downtown Encore Books stores in a matter of weeks last June, and Gordon's Booksellers had long since packed up the last of its volumes.Now, the business of selling books in the city seems poised for a dramatic rebound.Even as Barnes & Noble unveiled plans yesterday for its vast music and book emporium to open in the Cordish Co.'s $25 million Power Plant project, Pikesville-based Bibelot confirmed its intention to open two city stores.

Book lovers have a new source for finding good reads: Bookish , a new website created by Hachette, Penguin and Simon & Schuster. The site, which kicked off today, offers articles, reading recommendations and options to buy books through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other sources. Though it was bankrolled by the three publishers, the site promises to highlight a much wider array of books in its magazine-like style. Today, Elizabeth Gilbert takes issue with Philip Roth and other authors who have complained that the writing life is too grueling.

Editor: Since you published my story "Memories of Pearl Harbor Day " - Mary Griffin Frese - on Dec. 7, it has really taken off.  I have received rave reviews, so much so that I added two more chapters and had it published by 52Novels. The story is now on Amazon.com/kindle and Barnes & Noble/Nook.   Yesterday, I received a call from Reno, Nevada from a doctor praising the book. Any monies made will go to my nephew, who is unemployed and has a severely handicapped little boy who needs nursing care around the clock.

If local pharmacists could write the regulations, Marylanders probably wouldn't ever have been allowed to get their prescriptions filled at chain stores like Walgreens and Rite-Aid. Independent video stores probably would have liked to outlaw Blockbuster, just as small bookstore owners probably would have been just as happy if the state had a ban on Barnes & Noble. (For that matter, Blockbuster might like an injunction against Netflix and Barnes & Noble on Amazon.com.) And most of all, Main Street merchants everywhere would probably love a world where Walmart was illegal.

With her wispy gray hair and soft, peach-colored attire, Virginia Bates seems like the last person who could ever offend anyone. Indeed, the artist and grandmother of two is the first to admit that she naturally shies away from attention and controversy. That's why no one was more surprised than Bates when the Barnes & Noble bookstore in Ellicott City removed some of her paintings from an exhibit this month, deeming them unsuitable for its customers. "They said that some people -- they didn't say whether it was two or 10 -- objected to the fact that I had blood and skulls in my paintings," said Bates as she relaxed in her western Howard County home yesterday.

The news that Borders, the nation's second-largest book chain, is giving up the ghost and closing its doors after 40 years came as no real surprise to anyone. The Wall Street Journal observed last week that Borders' exit was the "'first major casualty of the digital era in buying and reading books. " The Borders empire, which was founded in 1971 in Ann Arbor, Mich., by Tom and Louis Borders, had grown to 500 stores nationwide, while its chief competitor, Barnes & Noble, is No. 1 with 717 stores.
