Bookmate Expands English Language Selection

Bookmate is a subscription based social e-reading service with offices in London, Moscow, and Singapore. With more than 1.5 million active users, and over 500,000 titles in nine languages, Bookmate brings together readers, authors, and publishers. Its social reading service is available across all mobile, tablet, and online platforms.  

The service has just announced the expansion of its English language eBook selection following a surge of deals with leading eBook publishers in the UK and the USA. Bookmate now offers more than 200,000 English language titles. Authors represented include Anthony Burgess, Alan Bennett, Mary Beard, David Peace, and C.S. Lewis.

Simon Dunlop, co-founder of Bookmate, commented: “English is the world’s most widely spoken language and a second language for many more people. Bookmate is strengthening its catalogue of English titles for these readers and these latest deals have brought many exciting authors to the service, continuing our trend of connecting readers with great books as we roll out to new markets this year.”

Bookmate is an open platform connecting publishers and readers directly. This means that authors listed on Bookmate can discover who is reading their books and access analytics to aid their own promotion and marketing efforts – authors in Asia take note!
