According to the publisher, this will be the first extensive list of Indian eBooks to be published internationally by an Indian company, and will be available from all the major international eBook retailers – Amazon, Apple, Kobo and Google, Gardners, Sony, OLF, Apabi, Go Spoken/Mobcast, OverDrive, Txtr, Ebooks.com, IGroup and Baker & Taylor.
The first list of over 240 titles from Penguin Books India consists of all the publisher’s new books published in 2012, and select bestsellers from the backlist. Over the course of the following months the company says it will continue to publish the remaining backlist while publishing our front list simultaneously in both print and eBook editions. By the end of this year Penguin India aims to have the largest digital catalog of Indian eBooks to be available on sale.
Penguin India eBooks will be priced to respective geographies and the full list of eBooks will go on sale in India at local prices when the eBook industry develops further here. Right now, readers in India will be able to purchase eBooks from any of the retailers listed above at international prices.
