Australian eBook company Booki.sh has launched five new independent eBook stores in Australia. Booki.sh will power the eBook distribution and sales for these stores.
From a specialty cookbook store to the winner of the “Best Independent Bookseller in Tasmania” award, the retail partners include: Books for Cooks, Mary Ryan’s, Fuller’s, Gleebooks and Avid Reader. The new partnerships come after Book.ish ran a pilot eBookstore with Readings Ebooks which launched earlier this year.
It was only last week that Google opened up its own Google eBookstore in Australia. Following the launch of digital book stores in the U.K. and Canada, Google eBooks Australia launched last week with millions of eBooks available. Like in other countries Google sells eBooks through their own site, as well as through independent book store partners. Google is already selling eBooks through Australian eBook stores Booktopia and Dymocks, with additional partnerships on the way.
