Amazon will begin to sell ebooks in physical booksstores in the US next month, according to a recent article in Business Insider.
The news comes just days after Amazon announced that it would be introducing an e-book store for US retailers.
While the e-commerce giant has yet to announce an exact launch date, the store will likely be launched in the coming weeks.
“Amazon is introducing a new e-reader for customers to choose from,” an Amazon spokesperson told Business Insider in an email.
“The new store will be open by the end of September and will be located in select bookstores.
All bookstores will be able to purchase e-readers from Amazon.”
Amazon’s e-reading service will feature a full library of more than 1,200 e-textbooks.
The company said it will also launch an online store, as well.
“As the world’s largest e-retailer, Amazon continues to innovate by offering more ways to buy and read.
We are excited to launch our e-store to offer the best selection of e-pub books and movies, as we continue to add new books and titles to our growing library,” the company said in a statement.
The new ebook store will offer the most popular e-Books and movies from Amazon.com, with the vast majority of titles coming from third-party publishers.
According to Business Insider, Amazon has a catalog of more a whopping 1,100,000 e-content titles and movies.
Business Insider also said that Amazon will be launching a physical book store in the next few weeks.
Amazon’s Kindle e-Bookstore will be in the physical space, with all e-ink titles, including the Kindle Fire, Kindle 3, Kindle 2, Kindle 1, Kindle, Kindle HD, and Kindle Voyage.
Amazon said it would also launch a Kindle store in some of its major cities like New York City and Los Angeles.
Amazon has been working on a more convenient way to purchase books since the launch of its Kindle Fire in 2013, with a “Buy Now” button in the Kindle app, and a “Shop Now” section in the app’s Settings menu.
However, Amazon didn’t announce a launch date for the Kindle Store, and Amazon’s new ecommerce store was announced last month.
Amazon has also announced plans to release more Kindle ebooks over the next couple of years, and it has said that it plans to make Kindle apps more affordable for new users.
Amazon recently announced that its Amazon Prime program will be expanding to over 50 countries in 2017.
