Hudson Booksellers, the airport bookstore chain, has launched an online bookstore where it will sell both print and ebooks. The move is intended to induce readers who discover books while traveling to buy them through Hudson once they get home.

HudsonBooksellers.com is run through the American Booksellers Association’s IndieBound program and sells ebooks through the ABA’s partnership with Kobo. Hudson has 66 bookstores at airports and train stations throughout North America, and sells books at an additional 365 newsstands as well.

The website focuses on curation — “no impersonal algorithms here” — and features staff picks, an “Ask a Bookseller” feature, a “Rediscover” section for “books you might have missed” and a deal of the day.
