SINGAPORE: Book lovers in Asia can now look forward to a new e-bookstore.
More than 300,000 titles are on offer at ilovebooks.com, a MediaCorp digital initiative.
The online store offers books in 50 categories for download.
It's the first Singapore bookstore to sell e-books internationally.
MediaCorp's managing director for convergent media, Philip Koh, hopes it can promote a love for reading.
Mr Koh said: "We're hoping to actually bring books back in front of people because a lot of them are actually using handheld devices, their tablet devices for other purposes. So we'll like to bring the books back into their hands."
