Bookmate expands deal with HarperCollins

In an expanded deal, Bookmate has signed up HarperCollins Publishers on board its subscription-based social reading service, the Russia headquartered company announced today.

The agreement, which expands the deal struck in October 2014, will add a significant number of books from HarperCollins’ UK catalogue to Bookmate’s library of English-language titles, bringing the total number of English-language tittles up to 250,000, the company said in a statement.

As a result, authors such as Annie Proulx and Jeffrey Eugenides and Sidney Sheldon will be available on Bookmate.

Other standout HarperCollins UK titles covered in the agreement include Arundhati Roy’s Booker Prize winner The God of Small Things, Ray Bradbury’s seminal dystopian novel Fahrenheit 451 and Cecelia Ahern’s debut smash PS, I Love You.
