Just found ebookfinder.org. It has quite a nice design with multiple search boxes on one page (I wonder whether the same framework could be used to build a customizable multi search engine) to find primarily French and English ebooks.

Thanks!

If you're a registered Luzme user (it's a free service), then you can add stores from different countries in your preferences.

The problem you'll have with Kobo (and Google) though, is that although I can display you the prices from the different countries, their store will insist on only selling to you in the country it believes you are from. So if you see a good price on a book in the Kobo GB store, and click through while you're in the US, you'll get the US prices and availablity.

Excellent! I see from your profile that you're in Ireland, which is getting near the top of my list of countries to add. Are there any ebook stores of interest, apart from the usual big ones?

I can't think of any besides the obvious, I'm afraid.

Thanks! "Awesome" is a quote I like

You should be seeing Amazon, Apple and Google in Spain, I think.

Do you have a watchlist? If so, please let me know of a book on it which is only showing iBooks and I'll investigate.

What other stores do you want to see in Spain? This is quite new, so I'm very open to suggestions. Casa del Libros? FNAC?

If you're seeing issues or have suggestions with the Spain selections, please use the feedback button (blue icon top left) to file a bug or make a suggestion.

I know see Amazon Spain, but not Google or Kobo (I see the American ones, though).

I'm not especially interested in either Casa del Libro or Fnac. I have never bought ebooks from them. They mainly carry Spanish books, which I rarely read or buy. And, what's more, prices of Spanish ebooks are the same everywhere (they are fixed by law) so I guess it's not that interesting in general.

Thanks!

Hi Odo

I've just added Google Spain, so you should start to see those prices come through. Working on Kobo Spain, I'll add that when I can.

thanks

There is no blue question mark, so I went to help then contact support.

Lol, I can't believe this is still active after over five years. The availability of ebooks sure has changed. I pretty much just use Amazon and iBooks now. When I made this I had a Sony reader. Does Sony even participate in the ereader/ebook market anymore?
