The Latest Insights from International Online Marketing
The German e-book company Skoobe has claimed that it has been a “success” in the country.
Over a quarter of Germans read digital books, “and more than 16% are interested in e-book subscription services,” claimed the company’s CEO.
Skoobe has around 140,000 different titles in its online library, in a selection of languages. It is also rumoured that it could add 1,000 older Macmillan books to its library in the near future.
There is heated debate about whether the digital book market is sustainable, with some commentators saying the sector’s future is bleak and heading for monopolisation by big names such as Google Books and Amazon Kindle Unlimited.
