Books & Their Moguls (4#) -

As BookExpo meets this week in NYC,
Big Box bookselling chains are in the spotlight . . .

In the UK, the HMV Group has agreed to sell its Waterstone’s book chain to Russian billionaire
Alexander Mamut in order to afford it debt relief.

Sam Jordison is optimistic about Waterstone’s because James Daunt is being brought in to run the operation.

In the U.S., Barnes & Noble bookstore chain has received a buyout offer from John Malone’s Liberty Media Corp.
