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.

We interviewed Marco Ferrario, CEO of 40k a new digital publisher in Italy, for eBookNewser, and he told us how Italians are taking to eReaders. “There are likely 150,000-200,000 people using eReading devices and 20 plus stores selling eBooks. 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.”
