Waterstones Ebook Store Is Closing


The Waterstone's eBook Store is closing and all of the digital content is being transferred over to Kobo. The UK bookseller announced this today on their main website and also via email to their existing customers. This is the 3rd major company to strike a relationship with Kobo.
The United Kingdom is facing a digital crisis with many of the leading e-book companies going out of business. It simply is not viable to compete against Amazon. In the last few years Blinkbox Books, the Sony Reader Store, the Nook e-Book store and a bunch of startups have all folded.
