Another (big) ebook retailer

November 8, 2011 at 2:03 pm Leave a comment

Google has been slowly pushing its ebook marketplace for a couple of years now, but it’s finally decided to have an Aust site. Um, why bother? I already get my books from other countries. However, these are E-books,  a concept most Australians readers  still aren’t enamoured with. Seems we likes ’em physical and we have the bookstores to prove it. We’re also big online buyers. So despite the large price hike to get books here, there’s a middle virtual market for “higher than overseas but lower than bookstore priced books”. Depending on what you’re looking for, one can still head overseas or buy local, albeit a local online store.

Evecho’s newsy bits

News, updates and links from the lesbian and publishing ‘verse that interest me, my current projects, keeping up with authors and sharing musings on middle-class life, gourmet adventures and comparisons between East/West perspectives. My opinions will likely be linearly logical and gayly bent, as they tend to be.
