Scholastic announced today that it had expanded its eBook to include titles from Sourcebooks, a leading digital publisher.

Sourcebooks will be distributing its current releases, backlist, and all future releases through Scholastic, which will enable Sourcebooks to quickly penetrate the academic market. Scholastic will be carrying the eBooks on its new digital reading app, which is due to launch this fall. Picture books, elementary series, middle grade chapter books and young adult novels will all be available for download onto the new app through Scholastic Book Clubs.

“Sourcebooks is an ideal partner for the new Scholastic e-reading application because of the wide array of bestselling titles they offer. We also share a mission of reaching as many young people as possible with books that will enrich and inform their lives,” said Judy Newman, EVP, Scholastic and President, Scholastic Book Clubs and eCommerce. “For years we have loved offering Sourcebooks titles through Scholastic Book Clubs, and we’re excited to be able to offer these treasured titles in an electronic format to encourage even more kids to read every day.”
