Whenever you download the ebooks included in Tolino select they are stored in the cloud. They are able to be accessed with the Tolino app for Android or IOS. They also will able to be read on the complete line of Tolino e-Readers.
There are a number of famous authors participating in Tolino Select. Luca Di Fulvio, Sarah Lark, Tanja Kinkel, Hans Fallada, Tana French, Cody Mcfadyen, Dania Dicken, Andreas Foehr, BC Schiller, Maya Shepherd or Meredith Wild are among the authors. The books come from renowned publishers such as Droemer Knaur, Bastei Lübbe, Aufbau, Dotbooks as well as self-publishers, which appear at tolino media.
This is the first time that Tolino has offered an ebook subscription program. It remains to be seen if they can garner market share, they do not seem to be promoting it strongly yet. This is primarily due to the fact that you purchase a subscription from individual retailers that belong to the Tolino Alliance; such as Hugendubel, Thalia and Weltbild.
