A wide range of e-reading choices has come to town, just in time for the holiday shopping seasons. Giovanni's Room, an independent bookstore in Philadelphia is now selling ebooks through its website www.queerbooks.com and ereaders by Kobo in the store at 345 S. 12th St. (corner of 12th & Pine Sts.), Philadelphia, PA 19107
Beginning now, Giovanni's Room offers a total e-reading experience for their customers, including a full line of eReaders, eReading accessories, and ebooks from Kobo's catalog of 3 million titles. At the center of the program, will be new e-readers from Kobo, a leader in eReading with more than 10 million registered users worldwide.
Giovanni's Room has been selling Google eBooks, but that program will end in January 2013. "We are pleased to offer our customers a broad and diverse eReading choice," said store owner Ed Hermance. "By working with Kobo, our store offers our customers an extensive catalog of the ebook titles our customers love and want, and a choice of innovative new eReaders at affordable prices. Now we can continue to offer our loyal customers the chance to buy ebooks and support their favorite bookseller at the same time."
Independent stores have banded together to offer as broad a range of ebooks in this age of giant corporate players to offer millions of ebooks that can be read on most devices--iPods, smart phones, laptops, and many more. The stores have also come together to become sellers of Kobo eReaders, a Consumers Report Best Buy, for their reasonable price and up-to-the-minute features.
"By combining Giovanni's Room's announcements of new books and ebooks in our specialties with the offer of five million books and three million ebooks in all subjects, the store offers people a way to support us by buying all their books and ebooks
through us," Hermance said.
