Two more locations of Amazon Books are scheduled to open this year, with a third in the works.

First on the docket is a store in Maryland’s Bethesda Row district, just north of Washington, D.C. Amazon Books is anticipated to open in Bethesda sometime this summer–just months after Barnes & Noble’s departure from the area, which closed in January of this year. There is also an Amazon Books in Georgetown.

This fall, Amazon Books will open its second LA-area location, in the Palisades Village shopping district of the Pacific Palisades. The LA Times reports that this location will open on September 22.

Finally, Amazon will open its first Colorado location, with an Amazon Books in the Park Meadows shopping mall of Lone Tree, just south of Denver, on its way.

This will bring the total Amazon Books locations to eighteen.
