Amazon has launched a special section for eBooks in Russian on its Kindle store. thinkRUSSIA analyses what this means for the Russian e-book market.
Friday the 13th is known as an inauspicious date. For aficionadas of Russian language and literature though, that day this month brought some welcome news. Amazon, the world’s biggest online retailer, added a Russian eBook section to its store. Although books in Russian could be purchased on Amazon before, now they are for the first time stored in one concrete place and indexed to enable an easy search.
