Memorandum to executives at Barnes and Noble: If you want to stay in the online
bookselling business, it is time to play another game. That game is follow the leader, and
if you want, the position of leader is still available to you.

You have been at the forefront of some brick-and-click integration developments, tying
your stores and Web site together as well as anyone. In many ways, your online affiliate,
Barnesandnoble.com, is already a leader. But it's time to take the next big step.
It's time to go all the way.

If Barnes & Noble does not hurry, the Amazon/Borders Alliance will decimate them.

For years I never did understand why online stores were not treated either as its own branch store, or an extension of one's local store? Why can I not pay online and pick up the book on my way home? Why can I not buy gift certificates online for the store nearest my nephew?
