Canadians have had to be content with a form of Kindle Store limbo until now. They could buy Kindle e-books, but they've had to rely on a US-centric portal that scarcely acknowledges their literary tradition. As of this weekend, they don't have to cross the virtual border: Amazon Canada now has its own dedicated Kindle book section, with prices in local currency and the highlights on local writers like Margaret Atwood. Customers just have shop the newly opened store to make the switch. We wouldn't call it true parity with the US when Canucks still can't officially buy some Amazon hardware, like the Kindle Fire HD or Kindle Paperwhite. Nonetheless, it's nice to know they'll be treated as first-class customers when shopping for a copy of Alias Grace.
