Publishers participating in the beta test of our new Slicebooks Store platform come up with all sorts of different use cases for the eBook Remixer.

One of our beta testers is Twin Sisters Productions, who aim to be “the leaders in children’s educational music”.  The folks at Twin Sisters also produce content in Spanish, and are now experimenting with remixing English and Spanish content to produce bilingual ebook collections for their users.  We expect this trend to continue in other languages as more bilingual publishers get their catalogs sliced.

As for Spanish ebooks in particular, as Good eReader reports, sales of Spanish language ebooks has exploded.

What are the driving factors of Spanish eBook sales? This can be attributed to Latinos adopting tablet computers and e-readers at an accelerated rate. According to a recent study by the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project. In 2011, about 1 in 20 Hispanics owned such a device, the group found; in 2012, the number had jumped to nearly 1 in 5.
