Txtr Opens eBook Stores in 5 English Speaking Countries

The German eBook company Txtr has opened five new eBook stores around the globe, expanding its platform into the English-speaking countries Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Ireland and Canada.

Good E-Reader has the story:

txtr has launched in Australia with books from Hachette, Penguin, Simon & Schuster and Pan Macmillan, as well as leading independent publisher Allen & Unwin. In South Africa txtr provides access to best-selling titles from US and UK-based publishers as well as over a thousand titles from New Holland Publishing and Random House Struik. In all seven countries, the txtr stores offer a choice of well over half-a-million English-language titles: for example 660,000 titles are available on au.txtr.com and over 720,000 titles are available on gb.txtr.com.

Last month, the company launched an Adobe DRM based reading app for Windows 8. Like the platform’s iOS and Android apps, the Windows 8 app works in English, French, German, Spanish and Italian.
