A visit to: Amazon Books in University Village, Seattle

You may have heard on the news that Amazon is opening a physical store to sell books, its products as well as let you play with the Amazon devices family. Additionally, you will have a chance to interact with Amazon techies who will answer all your questions.

In Amazon’s words:

This store is a physical extension of Amazon.com


Inside the store

Once inside, like any other book store, you have shelves full of books (duh!) 😉 The difference is that Amazon only sells top ranking books.

The books in our store are selected based on Amazon.com customer ratings, pre-orders, sales, popularity on Goodreads, and our curators’ assessments.

Do not walk in and expect to find just any book:

The tryout bay

Ready to checkout?

Everything so far was fun and dandy, but when the time to checkout and pay arrived, I was met with what I usually dread: a long waiting line.

Oh the irony: I went back, returned the book to the shelf and ordered it again online via Amazon.com 🙂
