— NPR's Elaine Korry reports from San Francisco on the anti-trust suit that independent booksellers have brought against the nation's two largest bookstore chains, Borders and Barnes & Noble. The American Booksellers Association filed the suit in federal court on behalf of 26 independent stores. The lawsuit accuses the two chains of violating anti-trust laws by reaching secret pricing arrangements with publishers that place independent bookstores at a competitive disadvantage.
