Santillana USA's eBook Titles Now Available on Apple's iBookstore - Free Resources for Spanish Teachers
Over 2,000 Spanish Language eBook Titles from Santillana USA’s Catalog are Now Available on Apple’s iBookstore
Santillana USA, the world’s leader in Spanish language publishing, now offers over 2,000 ebooks from its global catalog on Apple’s iBookstore.The publisher started selling titles on the iBookstore in late 2011, increasing the number of available books rapidly in order to meet a growing demand from Hispanic audiences.
This rise in demand is attributed partly to the popularity of titles buzzing at times in Latin America. With nearly half of Santillana’s ebooks by Latin American authors, Spanish language book lovers in the U.S. will be able to purchase bestsellers from that region as soon as they are released, simultaneously with their international counterparts.
This digital catalog also contains a significant number of children’s and young adults’ titles originally written in Spanish. With over 400 ebooks in that category, Santillana becomes one of the few Spanish language publishers catering to that audience with such large selection.
Best-sellers include children’s titles such as Matilda, Judy Moody titles, Judy Moody & Stink titles, as well as the entire Crepúsculo collection (Twilight) for young adults. In the fiction category, La Reina del Sur by Arturo Pérez-Reverte and Conquistadora by Esmeralda Santiago rank as top sellers. Querida Dra. Polo by Dr. Ana María Polo; Pablo Escobar: el patron del mal by Alonso Salazar; Kiyosaki’s Padre Rico, Padre Pobre (Rich Dad, Poor Dad); and La civilización del espectáculo by Nobel Prize winner Mario Vargas Llosa are bestselling non-fiction titles.
Taking advantage Apple’s unique fixed layout format, which displays illustrated books such as children’s titles beautifully, the publisher boasts the largest selection of these types of titles in Spanish in the U.S. These include picture books, graphic novels, and travel guides.
By offering such an ample selection on the iBookstore, Santillana is making its catalog easily accessible to Spanish language book lovers who own an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, putting a global selection of titles literally at the fingertips of millions of readers.
