Amazon Buys U.K. Competitor

Book Depository purchase to boost international dominance

Amazon is making a move to become even more international. The online bookseller has just acquired the Book Depository International, a U.K. bookseller that distinguishes itself as being home to "the largest range of titles in the world." The terms of the deal have not yet been released, but the acquisition looks like an attempt to bolster Amazon’s already notable international presence.
