With millions of consumers turning to eBooks around the world at a dramatically escalating rate, it should come as no surprise Thursday that Amazon is introducing eBooks Kindle en Español, a Kindle Store with the largest selection of Spanish-language bestsellers available today.
“eBooks Kindle en Español” is designed and optimized for U.S. Spanish-speaking customers who can now shop for Spanish-language books in the new store on Amazon.com, or set any Kindle device to access a customized shopping experience designed for books in Spanish.
As of this writing, the store has over 30,000 titles, including exclusive nonfiction work.
“We’re excited to introduce Spanish language storefronts on all Kindles, as well as a dedicated store for our Spanish-speaking customers in the U.S.,” says Russ Grandinetti, Vice President of Kindle Content. “We expect our Spanish-speaking customers to enjoy both the newly-added books in Spanish, and the improved shopping and reading experience-including dedicated customer service in Spanish-that we’ve added to eBooks Kindle en Español. And we’re looking forward to continued expansion of our store for Spanish language readers around the world.”
