Who says we don't read print books anymore?

 

As reported by Washington Business Journal, Amazon has plans to open a bookstore in Georgetown. "Steven Roth, the chief executive of Vornado Realty Trust, told investors this week that Amazon has leased 10,000 square feet at 3040 M St. NW, a storefront previously occupied by Barneys New York."
