Amazon Kindle DX Graphite

Amazon’s ebook readers, the Kindle wi-fi Graphite and the Kindle 3G + wif-fi Graphite, can now be bought on the high street.

Curry’s, Dixons Travel, John Lewis and PC World have all started stocking the electronic books.

The e-books are not available online - consumers must buy their ebooks by visiting the store, Amazon said.

Earlier this month, Jeff Bezos, Amazon chief executive officer, said the online retailer had sold more ebooks than paperbacks for the first time.

According to figures from its result for the last financial quarter, Amazon sold 115 Kindle ebooks for every 1000 paperbacks sold.
