Mebooks launches NZ ebookstore, beats Whitcoulls to the punch

From the announcement: have today launched their online eBooks site which will allow local titles of interest to Kiwis to be purchased and downloaded. The company will also help local publishers in the production and sale of their titles as eBooks, which can then be sold through the meBooks site or via other sales channels.

The site is rather ordinary, but well made. Currently the only listed format is Epub. The most notable detail about this ebookstore, though, is that it has no ebooks to sell. Mebooks have taken the rather novel approach of opening  a store with only public domain titles, and all the titles are free.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
