It seems that retailers like this rely solely on the sales from people who aren't in tune with the state of music...

Book stores are the ultimate for bad, last minute gift ideas. Family members looking for that one thing to go along with a Twilight book etc will pick up a $22 Fame Monster because they know their niece will dig it. They could care less about the price tag.

Still, it doesn't seem like a very profitable strategy, given the amount of floorspace that is usually dedicated to music in Barnes & Noble stores.

So I can't blame them for changing it up, I just don't think anyone really cares.


Of course it is a sign of the times. Ten years ago more people were buying overpriced CDs. Now they aren't. DUH.
