Jim Milliot has an interview with Jennifer Cast, v-p of Amazon Books, in which she states Amazon's new bricks and mortar bookstore had quite a crowd of book shoppers the first few days it's been open. As Panzer told you a few days ago, the books chosen for the store must be at least 4 star Amazon.com books, approved by Goodreads readers and Amazon staff. This means the store carries new as well as older books that meet that criteria. According to Ms. Cast, if the store is successful, there will be more Amazon Books stores.
|It does make me wonder.|
