Barnes & Noble's e-book sales have raced ahead of traditional book sales, and maybe the company's business plan, too.
Twelve years after it sold its first book, Amazon now sells more e-books than printed copies.
Google's just launched eBookstore, which made available approximately 3 million digital books from more than 4,000 publishers, will be a boon for the nascent e-tablet market, according to industry experts. It could also usher in ad-supported book publishing.
Christmas is getting close and Barnes & Noble still doesn't know if people who preordered their new ebook reader Nook will get them in time.
