Amazon to Open Bookstore in Their NYC Office Building

Amazon to Open Bookstore in Their NYC Office Building Amazon Bookstore About nine months back I suggested that Amazon would open a bookstore in the office building they leased on west 34th in Manhattan, and it looks like I guessed right.

The NY Post reports that Amazon's next bookstore will be located across from the Empire State Building:

Those devils at Amazon! They said they were opening their first brick-and-mortar bookstore in the city at Time Warner Center, where it’s under construction. But they didn’t mention a second one — at Vornado’s 7 W. 34th St. across the street from the Empire State Building.

Our source for this welcome news? Big signs in the windows promising a spring opening. Let a thousand bookstores bloom!

No one else is calling attention to the fact Amazon leased the entire building at that address in 2014, but unless there's some odd bifurcation where there are two buildings at that address then Amazon is indeed opening a bookstore in their office building.

Counting the stores in Portland, Chicago, San Diego, New Jersey, Walnut Creek (CA), the two stores near Seattle and two stores near Boston, and the other Amazon Books planned for Manhattan, this will be Amazon's eleventh bookstore.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
