Amazon Moves into Spain And A Conversation of the State of eBooks in Spain

TechFlash reports that Amazon has opened an online presence in Spain with and fitting Spain’s multi-language society, Spaniards can buy books in Spanish, Catalan, Galician and Basque. Books are not discounted (it is illegal), but DVDs, software and appliances are. No Kindle yet, though.

And from you can watch (I would recommend just listening to it) the 30 minute conversation. It is interesting especially since Javier Celaya the Spanish expert suggests the Kindle won’t be as big a player. It will be more the tablets. There are some sad statistics about home many people read books in Spain: 50% say no, and another large portion buy 3 to 4 a year.
