Indie Reader App for Android

If you've been hankering for an easy way to purchase ebooks from your local independent bookstore (ahem), check out this new app from Indiebound called IndieReader. It's a slick new app that allows you to set up your preferred independent bookstore and then browse and buy ebooks easily. Currently it's available for Android devices and will shortly be available for iOS devices (read: Apple). I downloaded it onto my Android phone and it worked like a charm, just a few quick taps. Once I had purchased the book through IndieReader, I could read it on any of my eReading devices.

The application was created by the American Booksellers Association and Bluefire Productions, an independent software company in Seattle. (We're big on independents!)

IndieBound is a community-oriented movement begun by the American Booksellers Association that brings together booksellers, readers, indie retailers, local business alliances, and anyone else with a passionate belief that healthy local economies help communities thrive. Successful local, indie businesses help dollars, jobs, diversity, choice, and taxes stay local, creating strong, unique communities and happy citizens.

You can download the app from the Android Market or from IndieBound. Or you can download it at our store -- just look for the QR code.
