In a world of virtual shelves, a virtual store of books has always been a possibility.
But is it feasible?
If you ask any book retailer, they will tell you that a webstore isn’t feasible at this time.
However, as digital books continue to be more popular, the ability to sell online is becoming increasingly important.
A new kind of book store is coming to the UK in the form of Amazon.com’s online store, the Amazon Kindle.
Amazon will be able to sell its books online through the Kindle, allowing customers to buy and read their books wherever they are, whether on their Kindle or any of the thousands of devices that Amazon makes.
It is one of the first big changes to the way people shop online since the advent of the internet.
It also signals the shift to digital services from physical stores, which are now largely obsolete.
