Amazon Books is a chain of retail bookstores owned by online retailer Amazon.com. The first store opened on November 2, 2015, in Seattle, Washington., Amazon Books has a total of eight stores, with plans to expand to six more locations.ProductsThe first location in Seattle has approximately 5,000 titles stocked on its bookshelves, using shelf space to display the covers of books facing outwards instead of spines; according to Amazon, the decision was made to showcase the authors and their work, rather than efficient use of space. The shelves display positive reviews and star-ratings from the Amazon.com website and prices are matched to online equivalents.The store also sells Amazon electronics, including the Amazon Kindle e-book reader, the Kindle Fire tablet series, the Amazon Echo, and the Amazon Fire TV. Two locations of Amazon Books have a cafe.HistoryThe first Amazon Books store, located at the University Village shopping center in Seattle, Washington, opened on November 2, 2015. The store has been described as the first permanent store from Amazon, who opened pop-up shops and pickup outlets on several university campuses in 2015. In February 2016, tech news website Re/code reported that longtime Amazon executive Steve Kessel was leading the retail store initiative, having previously been part of the team to launch the first Amazon Kindle e-reader. During development of the project, it was referred to as "Project Anne" in filings with the city.

  • From the world of the Internet into the real experience, it is probably this feeling, the reality of the warm space, the relaxed atmosphere, but the display method and the way of the account and the tradition is still different, do not put the price card, on the shelves of the most popular items, forever positive Chen, is not like the approach of the network technology company!

  • I just love book stores. This has a Great selection. Awesome prices. Staff knows their stuff. They are helpful without being pushy. Clean well thought out layout for the store
  • The store was nice, clean and organized. I just wish there was more employees to help. From what I saw there was only 1 employee at the register. No one greeted us or asked if we needed help.
