Amazon gets blamed for being too damn good and putting Borders or other booksellers out of business (and the struggles of Barnes and Noble). This is of course garbage: a well run company that adapted to the changing market-space would not have gone out of business. Proof is that many smaller bookstores have thrived in spite of Amazon. While some big box bookstores were poorly positioned for the changing landscape, and they didn't adapt fast enough. That's not Amazon's fault, and if it hadn't of been for Amazon, someone else might have eaten their lunch. Blame Barnes and Nobles for not being Amazon and disrupting themselves before Amazon did.
