Foyles and txtr annouce new eBook service

13th February 2012

Foyles bookshop has launched Foyles powered by txtr, a new eBook store and free eReading apps with some features in beta, as the first in a series of new digital developments to be announced. The integrated service will give users the choice of over 200,000 eBook titles, which can be accessed from a range of devices, and provides facilities for cloud storage.

Once signed up, readers will be able to access their personal eBook library from any internet enabled reading device - be it a smart phone, eReader, tablet or personal computer. Available for Android and Apple iOS platforms, the apps will also have the ability to synch bookmarks and notes across devices, as well as an option to integrate existing ePub and PDF libraries.

Sam Husain, Foyles' Chief Executive, comments:
'At Foyles we are very excited by the developments in reading and bookselling afforded by digital technology. Our new eBook store and apps, Foyles powered by txtr, will make buying and reading eBooks as easy as possible, without the added expense of having to buy new hardware. It is the next step in our on-going journey to serve our customers with a choice of books, across the widest possible range, in every format.'

Christophe Maire, CEO of txtr, comments:
'The partnership with Foyles is another step for txtr in the fast growing English language eBook market. Foyles is for book lovers what brands such as Rolls Royce or Aston Martin are for car aficionados. The quality of their specialism is well-known and the depth of their offering is internationally renowned. Together, it is our intention to take eBook shop management to that same level.'
