Are you buying CDs, DVDs or books as Christmas gifts?
Christman writes, "Merchants cited the lack of hit releases as the main reason for the decline...." He quotes the president of Value Music: "I can't remember a Thanksgiving that didn't have any superstar releases on the Tuesday before..."

TV shows drove the DVD surge, she added."
