Take a Walk on the Wild Side

After watching Cersei's GOT walk of shame on Sunday, I got to thinking: Wouldn't it be nice if LJ had its own rebirth of sorts, and returned to exploring productive ideas on how Barnes & Noble might rebound in the current business climate? Way back when I started posting here, I made the following predictions on how BN might stay viable:

1. Comfy chairs & couches, making the bookstore a destination to relax, read, and have coffee.
2. Expanded Cafe service, including a better menu, and wine bars at certain locations.
3. Smaller on-site book selections, focused on fast-moving titles.
4. In-house POD machines, allowing immediate printing - rather than ordering.

Now, who wants to guess why I'm bringing this up again?

Re: the cafe menu -- I give them big kudos for the new sandwiches. The Philly cheesesteak and tomato caprese are surprisingly good. I think the chicken tenders were a miscalculation, though. Parents with young kids should be the ideal target group for this food, but nobody seems to be making the leap when we recommend them on the bookfloor. It doesn't help that there's a Chick-fil-A right across the street; given the choice, I'd go there, too.
