The nation’s largest book chain put itself up for sale Tuesday, as the advent of digital books continues to shake up the traditional book-selling landscape. The New York-based company said a falling stock led the board to consider all “strategic alternatives, including a possible sale of the company." Founder and chairman Leonard Riggio is reportedly considering forming an investor group to buy the company. [WSJ]
