Amazon Sees What 'We've Known for 44 Years'

Shelf Awareness

"I'm excited that they see what we believe that the printed word isn't dead. We've known for 44 years that people like to browse and shop bookstores.... We know how to manage stores with smart intelligent people who have to know about authors and subjects. It's harder to do that than putting a book in a shipping box. Plus, space is valuable and you have to put every square foot to work."

--Kathy Doyle Thomas, Half Price Books executive v-p, speaking with the Dallas Morning News about reports that Amazon is planning to open more bricks-and-mortar locations
