Brazil's First E-bookstore Opens for Business

Link: http://www.gatosabido.com.br/



They are partnering with COOL-ER.

RIO DE JANIERO: On December 15, Brazil’s first e-bookstore — Gato Sabido (Smart Cat) — opened for business, offering approximately 400 titles in Portuguese. “The Gato Sabido is going to work on every step of the e-book process, from conversion to sales,” says Carlos Eduardo Ernanny, company founder and CEO. The new company plans to offer 30,000 titles in Portuguese by the end of 2010.

Titles range from A Economia em Pessoa by Gustavo H. B. Franco (Editora Zahar), which has garnered media attention for its unique take on the poet’s work, to O Vinho Mais Caro da História by Benjamin Wallace [The Billionaire's Vinegar: The Mystery of the World's Most Expensive Bottle of Wine].

Well its good news for us people who speaks portuguese.
But we will have to wait more, because after browsing on the site I was able to see that there are categories where there is only one book, ONLY ONE.

I hope the put more books in portuguese and we see more ebookstores with titles in this language.

For know you can find only some classics for free on site like Gutenberg, and new titles only on the darknet.
