Amazon push Kindle into Spain

Amazon launched “eBooks Kindle en Español,” which carries 30,000 e-books in Spanish — including an exclusive title by Paulo Coelho. The company also offers Spanish-language customer support.  

Amazon says that eBooks Kindle en Español offers “the most Spanish-language bestsellers, as measured by Nielsen.” That includes “all of the Spanish-language Nielsen best sellers available as e-books in the United States, and 65 of the top-100 Spanish-language print best sellers from Amazon.com.” Bestselling Brazilian author Paulo Coelho is offering a $1.99 nonfiction title, El Libro de los Manuales,  exclusively through the store.

Amazon also struck a deal with Spanish-newspaper El Pais (Grupo Prisa) through which it offers “compilations of articles from El Pais, including exclusive pieces from Mexican journalists writing about Mexican current affairs,” . eBooks Kindle en Español also offers subscriptions to Latin American newspapers.  Amazon also has translated nine Kindle Singles into Spanish.
