Barnes & Noble Posts Loss; Nook Device Sales Fall - WSJ.com

Big challenges for B&N -- before the next wave of Kindle devices arrives
"Barnes & Noble said that it continued to maintain its healthy e-book market share in the U.S. of 25% to 30% during the quarter. But Nook device sales declined in the fourth quarter in part because of higher third-party retailer returns and lower average selling prices. Overall, the digital business reported a loss, before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization of $77 million for the quarter, widening from the loss of $47 million in the year-earlier quarter.
