ebook Stores In malaysia.

Here are some of the ebook stores available in Malaysia now.

1. Google Play Books.
You can find it in your Android phone, as a built in app. I believe Google Play has the biggest market share in Malaysia now.

2. Kobo.
Get your legally available English language ebook here. This is my personal favourite.

3. e-Sentral.
The biggest collection of more than 10,000 local titles. They are the pioneer in local market. Aside from retail model, e-Sentral also supplies ebook to libraries.  

4. National Library of Malaysia (PNM).
Not ready to buy yet? You can borrow ebook for 14 days from the National Library. Go to pnm.elib.com.my, self register and download the reading app. By the way, the ebook lending system is supplied by e-Sentral. 

5. Kakibuku.
New comer, from very established IT company. Growing titles.

6. Bachabooku (Closed down in 2016)
New comer, from Celcom. Number of titles still limited. However, they offer a lot of local magazine titles. 

7. Book Capital.
Relatively new player in local scene. Owned by government agency, Perbadanan Kota Buku. Their ebook store is a white label solution from e-Sentral, and the catalogue is almost identitical and quite rich.

8. Lazada Malaysia ebook.
New player in the market. Based on industry source, the catalogue is also provided by e-Sentral. This is certainly making e-Sentral the largest behind the scene aggregator.

New entrance to Malaysian market. Launched Malaysian edition in early Dec 2016. They are from Taiwan. Malaysia is the first international foray for PUBU. They offer subscription service consisting ebook, newspaper and magazine. 

10. Apple iBookstore.
From apple. Still missing support for Malaysia, despite availability of their other digital stores : appstore, newsstand, itunes. I am putting them in the list, with hope that they will turn on local support soon.
