This morning’s Globe & Mail broke the story. Chapters/Indigo has aggressively entered the ebook market, offering 50,000 ebooks for sale from $4.99 to $19.99. These can be downloaded to your computer, your iphone, your iPod touch, Sony Reader etc.
You won’t find Canadian titles there — yet. Indigo has pitched its woo at the multinationals: Random House, HarperCollins, Harlequin, Simon & Shuster. Those publishers have already secured North American or worldwide epublishing rights.
