Maybe they should see if Steve Riggio is available. At least from the NOOK perspective.
It was Steve's B&N that created NOOK and made it a genuine alternative to that other company. Then Lynch came in and shortly afterward, the NOOK business began to collapse. By the time Lynch left, NOOK was reduced to a niche product, mainly serving those of us who'd already bought into the NOOK system. The B&N infrastructure for that NOOK system then crumbled under Huseby and Boire, and now...
I haven't ordered a NOOK book in two years. Well, it'll be two years the day after tomorrow. I won't order one, because I have zero confidence that it'll be available to me for any length of time.

I bought an $8 "disposable" eBook from B&N earlier this month, and used up most of my settlement funds.
I used to work for a small company, where the "solution" to problems was to fire somebody. The result was the name of a famous Agatha Christie story.
The problem there (and here) is at the head of the ticket.
I still buy Nook books, though at the moment I've paused because I have a few dozen backed up in my to-be-read pile. I just make a future-proof backup of every book to be on the safe side.
