Barnes & Noble: Quamut Death announcement: August 2009
Bookseller Barnes & Noble launched Quamut in March of 2008. The site hosted how-to guides that could be purchased both as a digital and a physical, laminated copy. Most ran anywhere from $3 to $6, and covered all manner of topics from software programs to cooking techniques. It also had a user-created Wiki section that let people create their own guides.
Barnes & Noble discontinued the Quamut site and the user-generated Wiki in August, however, it still sells some of the physical printed guides online and in its stores.
