Sharing Simon and Schuster’s 2012 fourth quarter results, CEO Carolyn Reidy said the publisher was focused on throwing more weight behind physical retailers. “The shift in the retail environment is a worry,” Reidy reportedly said. “We need retailers for book discovery.” This comes on the heels of alleged tension between the publisher and Barnes and Noble.
