Friday Forum: Would You Shop at an Amazon Bookstore?

Rumors surfaced this week that Amazon is planning to open a bricks-and-mortar bookstore in Seattle, and the internet was predictably abuzz with commentary and speculation. I have plenty questions about what an Amazon bookstore would look like in practice–Kindle stations? Actual booksellers or technology jockeys? A store designed to showroom print books in service of digital sales?–but what I really want to know is this: would it work?

So tell me: would you shop at an Amazon bookstore? Why or why not?
