BajaLibros, a big Spanish-language ebookstore, comes to the US

11 April 2013

From Paid Content:

BajaLibros, an Argentinian digital book store that sells Spanish-language ebooks throughout Latin America, has launched in the United States. But there is already a lot of competition for the Spanish-language ebook market here.

BajaLibros is owned by Grupo VI-DA, an Argentinian digital media group. The bookstore says it sells over 50,000 free and paid Spanish-language ebooks, which it says is more than Amazon or Apple’s iBookstore. The ebooks are available as EPUB files, protected by Adobe DRM, and can be read on  BajaLibros’ iOS and Android apps or on devices that support Adobe Digital Editions, including Barnes & Noble’s Nook and Kobo.

BajaLibros may have difficulty breaking into the U.S. market, where Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Apple have all opened Spanish-language digital bookstores already.
