Amazon Books opened its first store in the D.C. area in Georgetown on Tuesday, offering a modern take on the brick-and-mortar bookstore. The store sells physical books, e-readers and several Amazon products.
"We've tried to build an extension of Amazon.com," Amazon Books Vice President Cameron Janes told News4.
Only books that are top-ranked on the site or new are sold in the store.
"What we want is for customers to be able to walk in and know that every single book in the store is going to be a great book," he said.
