New information.

On June 14: https://www.cnbc.com/2019/06/14/barnes-noble-did-not-get-other-bids-before-elliotts-deadline.html

The board might not sign off on it.

I also found this quote:

"Barnes & Noble — Barnes & Noble shares fell nearly 3% after a group of investors said the proposed deal from Elliot Management undervalues the company and that the bookseller should look for other offers." from https://www.cnbc.com/2019/06/14/stocks-making-the-biggest-moves-midday-broadcom-chewy-blue-apron.html


Rumor from June 11: https://goodereader.com/blog/barnes-and-noble-nook-ereader-news/barnes-and-noble-receives-second-offer-to-buy-the-company

I'm not sure how accurate this is, or what else is going on, but this is interesting.

I am finding all this interesting because I know the cut off was supposed to be the 13th, but I haven't seen/heard anything finalizing it and was curious what was going on.

Looks like Elliot and Barnes & Noble might not be a sure thing.

Anyone else get the shudders when they read Riggio considered buying back the company?

(ETA more information)
If there were going to be really great offers, I think they would have emerged before now. While I understand why an investor might not like a deal that appeared to undervalue the company, the company is pretty much circling the drain. If they aren't careful, they'll end up with a much smaller offer in the end.

I'm with you. I would never buy based on "what readers think." I want to know what the book's about!

I've added a comprehensive sample project to the latest yWriter 7, but it's still brain surgery (to be honest.)

I'm thinking of doing a series of short training vids on youtube, explaining some of the features absolutely nobody else knows about, but ... that would take away from my writing time.

BookFunnel now has KU promos, so I just opened one for original fairytales and retellings.  If you're interested, here's the link.  :smilie_zauber:

Marketing Loft [Public] / Just started a new AMS ad

which is the first time I've started a new one in a long time. (I've had a couple of pretty successful ones running practically forever) I was wondering how long it takes these days for sales to show on the report? Still 3 days (if you're luck)?

Thanks again everyone for the replies - really interesting, and helpful.

I have added Books2Read to my list of things to check out in future.  My brain can only cope with one new system at a time, and right now I'm working on Book Funnel.

Feeling pretty pleased with myself having just navigated uploading my first book to Book Funnel - to be fair, Book Funnel make it so easy, I suspect even my mother could manage it!  Now I just need to work out the website / mailing list integration, but will do that later. After more caffeine.  Grin
When you are ready to check out Books2Read I think it should be possible to set up links so you know where the people who are clicking on them are coming from.  That means more links, which kind of defeats the purpose, but I kind of wish I had done that now.  For what's it worth Books2Read was pretty easy, compared to wordpress :)

I'm pretty sure that brain surgery is easy,  compared to WordPress (yep, it was that bad for me!)  :icon_rofl:
