LONDON — Waterstones has decided to clear its shelves of Kindles following "pitiful" sales of the e-readers, and it's giving the extra space to more books.
The UK's biggest bookseller will pack in more physical hardbacks and paperbacks in its stores across the country following an increase in sales of real paper books.
The company's managing director James Daunt told The Bookseller the move was a no brainer. “Sales of Kindles continue to be pitiful so we are taking the display space back in more and more shops," he said.
"It feels very much like the life of one of those inexplicable bestsellers; one day piles and piles, selling like fury; the next you count your blessings with every sale because it brings you closer to getting it off your shelves forever to make way for something new. Sometimes, of course, they ‘bounce’ but no sign yet of this being the case with Kindles.” Read more...More about Amazon, Books, Us World, Waterstones, and Book Shops

It's worth noting that Ballinasloe does actually hold an annual Horse Fair in early October (the dates of which include Sunday 4 and Monday 5), so it's possible the strange image is in some way connected to that, according to The Daily Edge.
