barnes-noble-logo.jpgRumors that Barnes & Noble will sell a digital reader alongside Amazon Kindle and Sony Reader dominated bookselling headlines this week. Since the bookseller purchased e-book retailer Fictionwise, this hypothetical e-reader could sell plenty of e-books.

We created this chart with eight publicly-traded publishing stocks hand-picked by GalleyCat readers–including company name, symbol, current stock price, and price increase or decrease at week’s close.
