James Daunt, managing director of Waterstone's, said he had been inspired to create the Waterstone's e-reader by US booksellers Barnes & Noble, which has an own-brand e-reader called the Nook.
"[Barnes & Noble] command the loyalty and indeed love of their customers, and their customers choose to buy their reading in both physical and digital form through them," Daunt said. "That makes perfect sense to me."
