With our agreement with the American Booksellers Association barely dry—the Kobo team has done it again, widening our presence in independent bookstores across the United Kingdom and Ireland. Now, along with leather bound first editions and shelves of paperbacks, your local bookstore will have access to nearly 3-million eBooks through our new exciting partnership with the Booksellers Association of the UK & Ireland (BA).

The Booksellers Association is an organization that represents 95% of booksellers in the UK and Ireland. These booksellers will be able to offer a complete eReading experience for their customers, including a new family of eReaders, accessories, and eBooks available in 60 languages.

We’re excited to work with the BA and have the opportunity to bring Kobo and our ‘Read Freely’ philosophy to independent booksellers, and more consumers across the UK and Ireland.
