B&N Sheds 100 Corporate Jobs

The Wall Street Journal reports (mostly behind a paywall) that Barnes & Noble has laid off about 100 employees from their corporate offices in New York City, roughly 4% of the total staff there.

The New York Times also has the story -- also behind a paywall, I believe, but I've paid for that particular wall, so I can read the full story.

It's not clear if these cuts affect or include B&N's publishing arm, Sterling, but I'm inferring that they don't, since Sterling is not being mentioned.

Update: Melville House's blog reports that some of the job cuts were at Sterling, including Philip Turner of Union Square Press.
