When it comes to commercial web sites, books seem to be one of the few areas where money is being made, and Barnes & Noble Inc has thrown its hat into the ring, launching its own website on Tuesday. The launch coincides with the news that Barnes & Noble is suing its online competitor Inc, alleging Amazon falsely claims to be The World’s Largest Bookstore in its advertising.
