First impressions of an Amazon bookstore - The Idea Logical Company

Panzer took a long trip in the Catosphere today. Our kitty pilot was looking for a little adventure. After traveling hither and yon he found a site called The Idea Logical Company. At the site he discovered a blog called The Shatzkin Files. After digging around for a while, he uncovered a post about what Amazon's Manhattan (New York) bookstore is like inside.

This kitty says it's not worth a visit.
According to site founder Mike Shatzkin, his wife found the Amazon store to be like an airport bookstore because all the book covers face outward. Mr. Shatzkin advises it only takes about 20 minutes to browse the entire store. Mainly this is because the store only contains 3,000 titles. Because of this small number, he points out a problem his wife had finding a book she wanted for a gift. Included in the post is a breakdown of the different types of books available.The post also has descriptions of two visits Mr. Shatzkin and his wife made to the bookstore and the differences in each visit.

Panzer says, "Hmm ... Only 3,000 books ... Doesn't sound like their sales would be enough to pay the rent."

Note: This is a h-u-m-o-n-g-o-u-s post. Bring two thermos of tea, three dozen muffins and a sleeping bag for a nap in the middle of today's reading selection.
