It’s been just over 2 years since Google launched their eBookstore and it is still limited to a handful of English speaking countries. But it looks like that is about to change.
Actualitte is reporting that Google Play Books (the rebranded Google eBookstore) is about to launch in France. They have not given a date for this event, but they did get a confirmation from Philippe Colombet. He’s the head of Google’s book scanning project in France, and that would definitely give him an insider knowledge on Google Play Books.
There’s no word yet on where else Google Play Books might launch, but it seems likely that we might see several European lunches this year.
