Amazon Kindle now available at airport bookstore chain

Busy travelers can now buy Amazon's Kindle e-reader on the airport concourse.

Maryland-based HMSHost bookstores began selling the readers Monday, according to the Washington Business Journal.

The Kindles are sold charged-up and ready to read, according to the Business Journal.

According to the Associated Press, HMSHost will start out selling the Kindle at its Simply Books retail stores at the following airports: Hartsfield-Jackson in Atlanta; John Wayne in Orange County, California; Charlotte/Douglas in Charlotte, N.C.; Salt Lake City; Dallas Fort Worth; San Diego; George Bush airport in Houston; Miami; Tampa, Fla.; and Minneapolis-St. Paul.

The exclusive deal makes HMSHost stores the only place to buy the Kindle offline.
