We’ll be reporting more about this big news in the coming days, but for now it’s a special honour to be able to say “Welcome” to our fellow citizens of Kindle Nation from across the pond.
Amazon’s thriving UK store is launching its own in-country UK Kindle Store at this moment, and that should do away for good with some annoyances like special duties added to ebook prices and all that sort of rot.
With these same new Kindles shipping daily out of the UK Kindle Store beginning August 27, we should see a continuing increase in the catalogue of Kindle ebooks available for the Kindle in the UK. The total UK catalogue recently surpassed 400,000 Kindle titles, and this screenshot of recent bestsellers makes it evident that — here’s a shocker — the late Mr. Larsson is doing just as well in Britain as he is doing stateside.
We’d be remiss if we didn’t confess that we’re especially excited because we expect this “Blogs are not available in your country or region” wall to be torn down right quick so that Kindle owners in the UK can begin enjoying their own daily dose of the #1 Kindle blog in the world, Kindle Nation Daily.
Can Canada, Japan, China, Germany, and France be far behind?
