Amazon Bookstore

24 Apr

An Amazon bookstore recently opened up in a city fairly close to us… and I spent too much money there.

I suppose there’s worse things I can spend my money on, right?

The bookstore was pretty neat. Rachel and I tend to go to our local Barnes and Noble, which is always great, but it was nice visiting another bookstore. Amazon was definitely smaller with its fewer shelves, but they had the books displayed face out. Seeing all the covers, along with little blurbs and reviews from the website right underneath them in a plaque, was fantastic. The majority of the selection seemed to come straight from Amazon’s most popular lists on their website.

I bought four graphic novel books, one hardcover, and three paperbacks. The hardcover and one of the paperbacks were for Rachel, but the majority of my money was still spent on books for me. Being an Amazon Prime member, I got the Prime membership prices, which was nice.

Payment was a bit odd for me, for I’m not one of those people who stores her credit card information on her phone and “taps” the register or card reader to pay. With my Amazon app on the phone, I needed to scan in a QR code by the register so the register knew I was a Prime member, then the payment was made with the card I have on file on my Amazon account.

It was really strange not taking out my card and swiping or inserting the chip. Like, I felt as if I forgot to pay. Now that I think about it, I wonder if they take cash at all?

Overall the experience was nice, and the workers there were very friendly and helpful. It was a bit crowded, which was understandable, and I think every bookstore could stand to be a little bigger, but it was nice visiting there.

Have you ever visited an Amazon bookstore?

    I wish they’d open one somewhere near me. I have heard good things but haven’t been to one myself. The concept sounds interesting (for payment).

      It was really nice, but I did miss the calming atmosphere that Barnes and Noble has. The Amazon Bookshop is there for you to buy stuff and leave. B&N has plenty of seating for you to relax, and the one near us has a cafe. The Amazon Bookstore is a good experience, though, and I hope you get to visit one soon!
