Kindle Bookstore: Not Only for Bookworms
There is a new bookstore in town: the Kindle Bookstore. If you are among the new generation of book readers, you probably own an electronic book reader or more commonly known as the e-reader. And if you have an e-reader, there is a big chance that you own a Kindle and you buy your books at the Kindle Bookstore.
An electronic reader is a gadget used to read electronic books (e-books). These devices are lightweight and have a long battery lifespan. Some e-readers like Amazon’s Kindle do not have lighting but it mimics the color and texture of a printed page onscreen. The size of the Kindle is similar to the size of a hardbound novel. The Amazon Kindle is the most popular e-book reader in the UK according to one survey. An electronic book is a publication in digital form. It is defined as the electronic version of a printed book, and can be purchased in online bookstores. The Kindle Bookstore UK has one of the largest collections of titles compared to other online bookstores like Barnes and Noble and Apple iBookstore.
What Books Are Available in the Kindle Bookstore?
The Kindle Bookstore has the widest selection of book titles available, especially if you compare them to other online bookstores.

If you are not looking for anything in particular and would just like to browse, you can look for new releases (divided into three categories: last 30 days, last 90 days and coming soon). You can also check out the customer reviews so you can get an idea if the e-book is a good read or not. You can also search e-books by genre (humor, science fiction, children’s) or title (Big White Panties, Breakfast of Champions, Harry Potter) or by author (Kurt Vonnegut, Stephenie Meyer, Anne Rice) in the Kindle Bookstore.
