Stuff to Buy Channel / Bullz-Eye Home

Amazon changed everything in the 1990's as its online book store revolutionized how many consumers purchased books. The incredible selection and ease of use made Amazon a powerhouse in the book business. Through the years they made tons of improvements, with comments and reviews from readers to the addition of used books. They drove the market, and naturally tons of other sites popped up as well, many with an emphasis on discount books.

This drove many booksellers out of business, particularly some of the big chains like Border's. Sadly, fewer old-school book stores and independents are around these days though some are hanging on and even selling through Amazon. People like the atmosphere and the convenience of impulse purchases.

Amazon also helped to accelerate another revolution with the Kindle. Amazon wasn't the first to release an e-book reader, but the Kindle started to dominate the space, particularly with the release of the Kindle 2. The book market will never be the same.
