Kobo Partners with Blooks to Sell eBooks in Brazil | The Digital Reader

Kobo Partners with Blooks to Sell eBooks in Brazil | The Digital Reader | MioBook...News! | Scoop.it
It hasn't gotten much attention outside of the country, but Kobo added a second retail partner last week. The indie media retailer Blooks Livraria announced on Friday that it had partnered with Kobo - but not to sell ereaders, or for that mater most ebooks. Instead, Blooks will sell a curated selection of ebooks which is intended to compliment the books carried in its three stores. What you will find in the Blooks / Kobo partnership is new. We do not want to duplicate in ebooks our physical collection of books; we want new things, different, which digitally complement the concept of Blooks as a bookstore. This includes titles not yet published in Brazil, those still awaiting translation, and also books by authors out of the loop or had never made the lists of best-sellers , but that need to be read and discussed. The first curated collection will focus on gender. You can read more on the Blooks blog. Kobo opened a local ebookstore in Brazil in partnership with Livraria Cultura in 2012. Blooks is only the second retailer to ink a deal with Kobo, and apparently it has no plans of maintaining a more traditional partnership. Blooks founder Elisa Ventura [...]

Does Anyone Actually Use Cloud Reading Apps? | The Digital Reader

Does Anyone Actually Use Cloud Reading Apps? | The Digital Reader | MioBook...News! | Scoop.it

A few years back Amazon, and the trailing trio (Kobo, Google, and B&N) all released cloud reading apps. The first apps were released shortly after Apple started extorting a vig from everyone with a media app on iOS, and they were designed to allow users to read ebooks with a web browser, and thus outside Apple's control. And they worked okay for that purpose. But that was five years ago; is anyone using them now?

eMusic Launches as eStories, an Audiobook Service with 80,000 Titles 

eMusic Launches as eStories, an Audiobook Service with 80,000 Titles  | MioBook...News! | Scoop.it
“ Following its acquisition late last year, eMusic has relaunched its audiobook service as eStories. Based on the Findaway platform, eStories offers a catalog of 80,000 audiobook titles which can be listened to in your browser or on Android, iPad, or iPhone. The audiobooks cab be bought individually, or via a subscription which costs $12 a month (with a 30-day free trial). “We are excited to be a part of the new and improved eStories audiobook experience. This partnership will expand their current catalog, placing more high-quality audiobooks in reach for their users,” said Mitch Kroll, Co-Founder & CEO of Findaway. eStories offers titles from all of the Big 5 publishers, including Hachette Audio, Macmillan Audio, and Penguin Random House Audio, with titles like The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins, The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah and The BFG by Roald Dahl. Then again, so does Nook Audiobook, which is also based on the Findaway platform. And you can find much the same selection at Downpour, an independent audiobook retailer and publisher. image by davidjmclare89 Check These Out!”

Kobo Firmware v4.0.7523 Adds Library eBooks to the Aura One (Screehshots) | The Digital Reader

Kobo Firmware v4.0.7523 Adds Library eBooks to the Aura One (Screehshots) | The Digital Reader | MioBook...News! | Scoop.it

Kobo's latest and greatest ereader only started arriving on doorsteps yesterday, and it has already gotten its first update. A Kobo beta tester has posted a new firmware for the Aura One over on MobileRead. He reports, and I can confirm, that this firmware adds the promised support for OverDrive ebooks (as well as other features). Alas, the firmware only works on Kobo's two newest ereaders (this has been confirmed by a couple users). But it does work; I installed it on my loaner Aura One, tied in my OD account, and have gone through all the steps required to borrow an ebook. Here's what we know so far. There's no way to browse just your library's catalog from the Aura One. All you can do is find titles which are in both the OD catalog and Kobo...
