Bookmate’s Subscription Reading Service Explained (video)

bookmate logoUnless you've been following international ebook news (or reading this blog) you might not have heard of Bookmate. Primarily focused in Russia, Eastern Europe, and the third world, Bookmate is a lesser known competitor to Scribd and Oyster which offers a subscription ebook service in primarily markets rife with piracy.

Earlier today I was digging through Facebook when I found this video of a presentation by Simon Dunlop, the co-founder of Bookmate's parent company Dream Industries. He gave a talk at the Silicon Valley Open Doors conference a couple weeks ago which I think is worth watching.

I already posted most of the details in the video when I wrote about Bookmate earlier this month, but not all. The video adds a perspective on how the founder sees the service and shows that he has a different viewpoint from most ebook CEOs.

Bookmate is focused not just on markets that the major players are largely ignoring but also on market segments which are too poor to attract attention.

About Nate Hoffelder (11479 Articles)
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."
