Amazon’s ‘Kindle’ now speaks Español and is introducing a brand new Spanish Kindle E-book store loaded with more than 22,000 titles for Spanish speaking customers.

“We are excited to introduce the new Spanish Kindle Store which features the most best sellers in Spain, the leading selection of titles in Catalan, Basque and Galician and also includes unique and exclusive titles from Rosa Montero,” said Gordon Willoughby, Director, EU Kindle.

“Kindle is already the best-selling e-reader in the world. It comes with an electronic ink display that reads like real paper, with no glare, even in bright daylight and it offers the convenience of downloading books in less than 60 seconds. Kindle is so small and light that it disappears in your hands, which is just what you want when you are reading a great story like ‘El puente de los asesinos,’ by Arturo Pérez-Reverte.”

The Spanish Kindle Store’s vast selection of titles in a wide range of genres include popular works from best-selling authors such as Mario Vargas Llosa, Julia Navarro and Carlos Ruiz Zafón, as well as articles and other content from El País and La Vanguardia newspapers, and thousands of free classics from the public domain, only available on Kindle.
