Our orders have been a bit lighter than normal, now that you mention it.  I've noticed that they site is a bit sluggish for the past few days, but maybe it's just me?

How about now?  We have really noticed a significant decrease in B&N sales over the past three weeks.  Normally we would have about 20 a week.  I only have 1 this week and I think I had 3 last week.

I was down last month, as well.  Glad to see it wasn't just me--not that I'm a misery loves company-sort-a-gal.  But I was wondering if I forgot to put deoderant on, or what.  Cheesy  In any case, I sure hope business picks up soon.  We might have to do a rain dance to the book god.

We only had 11 sales on Barnes and Noble last month. That's pretty pathetic for them. We had 23 from them in September 08. Our September 09 was pretty weak overall, just like the BookLadies experienced. But our overall sales drop certainly wasn't half on last year! So B&N definitely slipped.
