Digital Publisher Talks eBooks In Italy

While the Italian eBook market is still only about 1% of the market, the eBook business is beginning to grow in Italy. Want proof? Amazon is currently developing a Kindle store in the European nation.

Considering that less than 50% of Italians buy at least a book a year, these are pretty good numbers for a six month old market.”
