Amazon Opening a Physical Bookstore in Chicago - PW (Publishers' Weekly)

Panzer was tootling around in the Catosphere, when he heard ooohing and ahhhing. Following all the noise took our brave kitty pilot to the Publishers' Weekly site. There he found a post about Amazon.

Who will win?
According to the post by Judith Rosen, Amazon has announced the location of their fourth bricks and mortar bookstore will be Chicago, Illinois. Amazon's first bricks and mortar store opened in Seattle, Washington, last year, the second will open in San Diego, California, this summer, and the third will open in Portland, Oregon, later this year.

Panzer says, "Hmm ... It looks to this kitty like Amazon is planning to go head-to-head with the Barnes and Noble bricks and mortar stores. I know. I said yesterday no Barnes and Noble news for a while ... But, this sure looks like an attack on a wounded gazelle by a hungry lion."

Note: This is a short post. Bring a cup of tea for today's reading selection.
