Photos – Down Come The DC Books At Barnes & Noble

When we first reported this morning that Barnes & Noble were removing from their bookshelves the 100 graphic novels digitally exclusive to the Amazon Fire Kindle, there was some doubt. Even as Neil Gaiman tweeted the news, people got in touch to say their Barnes & Noble had received no such instruction. As one Upper Side New York Barnes & Noble had cleared its bookshelves, one store in the middle of Manhattan still had them all up on the shelves and hadn’t been told anything.

But the instruction now seems to have rolled its way across the company, so that CNN is reporting the news, quoting Barnes & Noble reps as saying;

“Regardless of the publisher, we will not stock physical books in our stores if we are not offered the available digital format,” the company’s chief merchant, Jaime Carey, said in a written statement. “To sell and promote the physical book in our store showrooms and not have the e-book available for sale would undermine our promise to Barnes & Noble customers to make available any book, anywhere”

One intrepid Bleeding Cool reporter was on hand at his local Barnes & Noble just as the books were coming off the shelf, and took photos.

More to come off though… get that Watchmen!
