Worldreader and Opera Bring Books to 5 Million Readers in Africa via Mobile Phones | The Digital Reader

Worldreader and Opera Bring Books to 5 Million Readers in Africa via Mobile Phones | The Digital Reader | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
The four-month-old partnership between Opera and the literacy non-profit Worldreader is already bearing fruit. Worldreader announced on Monday that five million readers have used the app that Opera and Worldreader developed. This app, which is prominently featured in Opera Mini in 34 African countries, enables readers to access a free online library consisting of 28,000 ebooks. That catalog spans 43 languages and a dozen categories, and includes ebooks from US and international publishers such as Publerati, Penguin Random House, Mills & Boo, and Open Road Media.

"We want to make sure the entire world has access to the books they need and want," said Elizabeth Hensick Wood, Managing Director for Worldreader, Europe. "Through this partnership, Opera and Worldreader aim to reach millions of people every month, across 34 African countries, through the cell phones they already have." The app is designed to work on small screens, and supports both online and offline reading. Initially developed [...]
