An interesting idea

If you like shopping for books online but miss the 'browsing in a bookstore' feeling you may like Zoomi Books, "A "real" bookstore with Amazon's prices, Amazon's secure payment, Amazon's shipping. " When you are in Zoomi you can browse Bestsellers, jump right to the sections you want and browse the shelves, or search for a book as you would in any online bookstore. I think it is an interesting concept and certainly allows for the chance of finding a new author just because the cover looked good ;) I know, it's not nice to judge a book by it's cover, but in a 'real' bookstore it takes a good cover and a catchy title to make me look at a book by an author I've not read before. I don't think Zoomi will change that.
