Barnes and Noble is opening a new Spanish language eBook store in the United States called NOOKbooks en español.

NOOKbooks en español includes digital books from well-known Spanish language authors such as Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Santiago Roncagliolo and Isabel Allende. The store also has translated works and includes the Spanish language versions of work from Stephen King, Ken Follett and Mark Twain.

Patricia Arancibia, International Content Manager, Digital Products at Barnes & Noble, had this statement: “For the first time ever, NOOKbooks en español enables Spanish speakers in the U.S., and those interested in learning and reading in Spanish, to get Spanish-language new releases, bestsellers, and classics in a digital format.”
