Gardner Books to Distribute eBooks via Blio

Baker & Taylor announced today that it had signed a new deal with one of the largest book wholesalers in the UK.

Gardner Books, working on behalf of nearly a thousand British eBook publishers, has agreed to supply its current catalog to Baker & Taylor so it can be distributed by the 8th most popular eBook platform, Blio. “Blio is an exciting development in the fast moving world of digital publishing and Gardners Books is delighted to bring this new software to publishers in the UK. The association with Baker & Taylor will create a unique opportunity for publishers in the UK & US to benefit from the extensive sales and marketing reach available in both markets,” said Bob Jackson, Commercial Director of Gardners Books.

Blio offers an adequate reading experience for both narrative and illustrated titles. This platform, which was voted most delayed reading platform of 2010, is currently available for PC, iOS, and Android. If you would like to see a demo, Baker & Taylor and Gardners Books will be exhibiting at the Frankfurt International Book Fair this week.
