E-book store for lo­cal ti­tles

CityPress - - Voices - – Grethe Koen and Binwe Ade­bayo

Lo­cal ti­tles are hard to come by, but pub­lisher Pen­guin Ran­dom House has a way to fix this prob­lem. There is a plan un­der way to pro­vide read­ers with a taste for lo­cal literature with an e-book por­tal. E-books, which are gen­er­ally more af­ford­able than their print coun­ter­parts, will be avail­able on the site, and the cat­a­logue will in­clude some of the pub­lisher’s best­sellers. The pro­gramme was launched at the SA Book Fair this week­end and the new­est sub­scribers walked away with a free e-book.
