The Amazon Bookstore Isn't Evil. It's Just Dumb. - New Republic

Today while Panzer was tootling around in the Catosphere, he stopped in at the New Republic site. There our inquisitive kitty boy found information about Amazon's New York bricks and mortar bookstore.

He has an interesting view on this.
In his post Alex Shephard expresses his disdain for Amazon's New York (city) bricks and mortar bookstore. Mr. Shephard points out that because of the 3,000 book inventory the bookstore carries Amazon can't possibly sell enough books to pay the rent for the bookstore space. He also finds the mixture and staging of the books confusing. He believes Amazon is probably opening bricks and mortar bookstores simply because they have too much money and want to spend some of it. Yesterday, Panzer told you about The Idea Logical Company's site founder Mike Shatzkin's views on the same bookstore.

Panzer says, "Ummm ... This little kitty told you yesterday Amazon couldn't make enough money with such a small inventory to pay the rent on the bookstore."

Note: This a h-u-m-o-n-g-o-u-s post. Bring two thermos of tea and two dozen muffins and a sleeping bag for a nap halfway through today's reading selection. If you plan to read yesterday's post as well, bring another thermos of lemonade and 2 dozen more muffins and a dozen cookies (biscuits).
