Home Depot to Stop Selling Books

Okay, maybe you never knew that Home Depot sold books.  Nonetheless, they're going to stop in order to, according to the home improvement giant, “better optimize the space in the front end of the store.”

This doesn't seem like a big deal, but Publishers Weekly states that publishers are concerned that other big box retailers like Wal-Mart and Target may follow suit as the sale of physical books slows.  These guys may not be traditional bookstores, but they move a lot of bestsellers and novelty books.

Just one more way that an industry in flux continues to evolve.
