BajaLibros has been operating in Latin America by way of Argentina for a number of years. The company is opening up a new online store in the US to take advantage of the large Spanish speaking audience. The new portal allows Spanish-language readers to download more than 50,000 books, novels, and textbooks. These including classics and bestsellers to enjoy on a variety of devices, such as iPads, smartphones, tablets with Android OS, netbooks, notebooks, and desktop computers.
Due to its contracts with large publishing houses throughout Latin America, BajaLibros.com offers ebooks in various genres, which include popular works from Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela, Argentina, Chile, and Peru, among others countries. For example, BajaLibros.com has the largest collection of Spanish-language books about Pope Francis—all of which have been written by him—including popular titles that have become BajaLibros.com’s best sellers since the Holy Father was elected.
Bajalibros has hard work ahead in the US market. Amazon and Barnes and Noble both offer around 50,000 ebooks each in their ecosystems. Although, both of these companies are far from the platform agnostic angle that Bajalibros has.
