Target announced in April that it had started selling Amazon's Kindle at select U.S. stores. Less than two months later, the company has said it will start offering the e-reader in all of its stores nationwide starting June 6.
Target, the first brick-and-mortar retailer to carry the Kindle, said the "response to Kindle has been overwhelmingly positive." The device retails for $259, the same price as the Kindle online.
Target's decision to sell the Kindle nationwide comes a couple months after news that Best Buy would carry one of the Kindle's chief competitors, the Barnes & Noble Nook. Barnes & Noble's device, which also goes for $259, just made news when the book retailer announced it was offering a free $50 Barnes and Noble gift card with any Nook eBook Reader purchase at Best Buy and Barnes & Noble outlets.
Although gift cards or price cuts don't seem to be in the Kindle's future, recent reports suggest that Amazon will unveil a slimmer Kindle with better display quality in August. So far, the company hasn't confirmed that such a device will be released.
