B&N just opened an ebookstore in South Korea

The Joong Ang Daily is reporting that the Sterling Publishing Company, a B&N subsidiary, has just started selling ebooks in Korea. They interviewed Sterling CEO Marcus Leaver, and I think it's worth a read.

What’s Sterling’s strategy for success in Korea’s e-book industry?

If you look at how we’re selling our books in Korea - we’re selling English-language versions of books, we’re selling digitally, we’re also selling the rights to the Korean-language books. So I think I have all the bases covered. I’m very happy for Koreans to be able to read Sterling titles in English or Korean as well as in book format and on digital devices.

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."
