Spanish readers can now read more, more often with read and listen subscription options for a low monthly fee

TORONTO July 4, 2024Rakuten Kobo announces the launch of Kobo Plus in Spain. The subscription service offers booklovers unlimited access to over 1.5 million eBooks and over 200,000 audiobooks for a low monthly fee.

“At Kobo, our mission is to make reading lives better. Our Kobo Plus subscription does just that, giving booklovers the freedom to read as much as they want, whenever they want, for a low monthly fee. We are delighted to bring the subscription service to our Spanish readers, so that they can enjoy their favourite stories without boundaries," said Bart Robers, Director, Audiobooks and Global Subscriptions, Rakuten Kobo.

Just in time for summer, Spanish booklovers can now access Kobo Plus via the Kobo Books App for iOS or Android and directly on Kobo eReaders. The Kobo Plus eBook and audiobook collection has something for everyone, from beloved literary classics to bone-chilling thrillers, sweeping romances, and thought-provoking nonfiction, including:

The Kobo Plus catalogue is ever-growing, with more titles being added to the collection each month. The service has three budget-friendly subscription plan offers:

  • Kobo Plus Read: Unlimited eBooks for 8.99 € per month
  • Kobo Plus Listen: Unlimited audiobooks for 8.99 € per month
  • Kobo Plus Read and Listen: Unlimited eBooks and audiobooks for 11.99 € per month

Kobo Plus is an ideal way to explore literary classics, an entire author's catalogue, dive into a new field of interest, or explore local and independent gems. The subscription lets readers sample a few pages from a genre or author they have never read, and move onto another book guilt-free if it's not to their taste. It’s an ideal option for avid book lovers who can tear through several books a month, and for those who prefer to read a few chapters before committing. There’s never been a better time to discover new authors and series on a Kobo eReader or with the free Kobo reading app.
