Went to the Amazon brick-and-mortar store at a local mall yesterday. It was very polished. Not a lot of “depth” to their stock, but not bad. And I like that prices match the online store for Amazon Prime members.
Very conflicted. On one hand I love seeing a bookstore back in the mall! That’s something I’ve missed and hated see closing at so many malls. Anything that promotes and supports people reading actual books is great!
On the other hand… it’s Amazon. I feel like they devastated the small local bookstores (as well as even some of the chains). And now that that phase is complete, they replace them. Cue evil laughter.
