A couple weeks ago, Amazon started shipping out Kindle e-readers, and the first ones were coming to select Canadian retailers, including Target.
Amazon has yet to ship to the rest of the world, but it is now shipping to some of the U.S.’s major online retailers.
Amazon is targeting Canadian customers, as it has done with other international markets, including the United Kingdom, where it started selling e-books for $5.99 per book in October.
It is now selling the books for $12.99, which is the same price as the $14.99 price in the U-K, though it is still cheaper than the UK’s $19.99 U.K. price.
While Amazon is offering a range of books in Canadian prices, some of them have more exclusive titles, including books from indie authors and more than 40 books from publishers that have not yet been made available in the country.
Some books from major publishers have also not been sold in Canada.
While it is difficult to determine exactly how much Amazon will charge for these books, it has said that prices will vary depending on the book’s size, the number of titles available and the country of origin.
These prices may vary depending upon how many of the books have been translated into other languages, the price of the e-reader itself, and how much time it has been out of print.
Amazon did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
