Word on the Street: Amazon Books Coming to NYC?

It’s been said that New York City is the literary capital of the world (and if it hasn’t been said, you heard it here first people.) While we’ve been anticipating the arrival of The Bronx’ very own Lit Bar, it seems Amazon has some brick-and-mortar plans for bookish Manhattan as well with not one, but two bookstores opening soon. While Broadway bamas have been prepped for the Columbus Circle opening in Spring 2017, sausageeggandcheese consumers will be getting their own chance to meet an actual Amazon employee at the newly announced 34th Street location this summer. The 11th Amazon bookstore will be directly across the street from the Empire State building.

They’re only selling bestsellers and books that have high ratings, but secretly we’re wishing they’d just shelve accordingly: Like New, Very Good, Good and Acceptable. What are your thoughts on the Internet powerhouse making landfall? In any case kids…
