Google has started selling e-books in Italy through Google Play. It’s the company’s first foray into foreign-language e-books. Google already sells e-books in the UK, Australia and Canada and plans to do so in France. In Italy, Google is competing against Kindle .
Google revamped the Google eBookstore as Books on Google Play in March. The company aims to sell e-books as part of an iTunes-like ecosystem rather than through a separate storefront.
