The German media retailer Libre.de has just added 220 thousand eBooks to its eBookstore. Customers can now search for and buy from a selection of 450,000 from German and international publishers including CUP, Pearson, Elsevier, and McGraw-Hill.
Libre also carries a number of eReader models, including the Acer Lumiread, Sony Readers, Pocketbook eReaders, and others. It also sells DVDs, CDs, books, and more. The Libre eBookstore even has an affiliate program with over 1,000 brick-and-mortar book stores signed up as partners in Germany.
It looks like the German eBook market might be about to get competitive. First Amazon launched its local German Kindle Store, and then Kobo started moving into Germany, and now Libre is adding foreign books in order to compete with the big boys.
