IndieBound Mobile Reading App Launches

IndieBound Reader is a new ebook reading application created by the American Booksellers Association and Bluefire Productions, an independent software company in Seattle, WA. The just launched reading app allows book lovers to read ebooks purchased at their local, independent bookstores. Currently, IndieBound Reader is available for the Android operating system, and it will soon be available for iPhones and iOS devices.

IndieBound is a community-oriented movement begun by the American Booksellers Association. It brings together booksellers, readers, indie retailers, local business alliances, and anyone else with a passionate belief that healthy local economies help communities thrive.

Independent bookstores partnered with Google in 2010 to sell Google eBooks because of its open and accessible platform, so indies can provide an easy way for their customers to discover, read, and buy ebooks at while supporting local business. The ebooks are sold directly through independent bookstore websites. For a complete list of indie bookstores selling Google eBooks, please click here.

Google eBooks are cloud-based, digital books that allow readers to access their libraries on almost any device from one single repository. You can purchase and read your Google eBooks on your Android device using the IndieBound Reader app, but you will also be able to read them later on your computer, and on a wide variety of eReaders.
