There’s no doubt that eBook sales are effecting the sales of traditional books and book chain Borders seems to be feeling the pinch more than others. Reports are in that the company’s sales aren’t too good and the company is apparently not paying publishers, something that definitely doesn’t fall into the “good news” category. While previous whispers included a potential Barnes & Noble merger, nothing has materialized just yet. One of the possible reasons is that Borders was late into the eReader game and is currently paying the price for it. While the NOOK and Kindle are selling like hot cakes, the Kobo is hardly hot property. Hopefully the company will be able to perform some magic and get itself back on track, since 2011 is just around the corner and the new year is here.
