Amazon to open German ebookstore next year?
Well, yeah. You could pretty much assume that Amazon were going to open ebookstores on all their country specific sites (UK, France, Germany); the only question was when.
The Bookseller are reporting on a story that hit the German blogs yesterday. Again, it’s not much of a story.
Germany could become the next market outside of the United States and United Kingdom to have a dedicated Kindle store.
Buchmarkt reports that publishers at the recent Homer 3.0 conference in Berlin said they were in discussions with Amazon representatives about a 2011 launch of a Kindle store.
Personally, I think it’s a bad idea. I’d much rather have one global ebookstore.
