Posted September 09, 2018 06:11:25Amazon has sold packing boxes to some booksellers for a whopping $7,921.90 in the first six months of 2018, the company said Thursday in a statement.
The books can be packed and transported to any of the retailer’s 3,100 stores.
Amazon said the boxes will be delivered directly to the customers and have a shelf life of three years.
It’s the first time that Amazon has sold books in packing boxes.
Amazon’s other books, including the popular Kindle, also have packing boxes on the shelves.
The company does not disclose the number of books that it sells in its books.
The packs are priced at $7.49 for 2,600 books, and $11.99 for 1,900 books.
They come with an Amazon Signature box and a “books packing box” sticker.
The new books, which are sold online, are a mix of fiction, nonfiction and poetry.
Amazon has been trying to attract more bookseller customers by selling more books.
It announced plans to buy back some of its own titles, including “A Wrinkle in Time” by Stephen King.
Amazon said it expects the new books to sell “well above” the books it sells online.
A New York Times review of “A New Yorker” said the book “seems to offer a very plausible portrait of the culture, politics and psychology of the city at the time of the bombing, a portrait that has never been seen before.”
The company has a long history of selling books in boxes, and the boxes can be used to hold books, but some bookstores and booksells have been struggling to make money selling them.
The boxes cost money, and they are difficult to clean.
