Random House titles now available internationally
« on: December 28, 2009, 04:02:12 am »
Random House titles go international on Kindle

Until now, Random House English-language books were only available to Kindle customers living in the United States, but now Amazon has announced that they will be available across its international Kindle Stores.

The titles will be available in the Kindle Store for download in any area where Random House has the digital rights, such as the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia. 

"Customers around the world will be thrilled to download bestselling English-language titles from Random House, such as Dan Brown's 'The Lost Symbol', all in less than 60 seconds", said Russ Grandinetti, vice president, Kindle Content.

Random House joins the likes of Atlantic Books, Bloomsbury, Canongate, Faber and Faber, Hachette, Harlequin, HarperCollins, Lonely Planet, Penguin, Profile Books, Quercus, Simon & Schuster and Wiley in international availability.

    In Australia we can now get the latest books by James Patterson, Dan Brown JD Robb and Kathy Reichs. They were not previously available. They do cost more than most of the other new releases (approx $16.85) but they still work out cheaper than buying the hardcover version from any of the stores over here.

    Awww... sorry for starting a new topic. I searched KB for "Random House" and even though Anarel posted that in the thread you linked to, it didn't show up. Sorry!

    I wish there was a way to improve the search function here at KB... it's very inaccurate.
