True to its pioneering spirit Collins is launching 40 eBooks this summer for a range of eBook readers including Kindle and iPad. Collins is also famous for innovating the first illustrated dictionaries (1840s), the Gem dictionary (1902), and the world’s first language database, the Collins Corpus (1987).
The first selection offers eBook versions of English and bilingual reference books from the bestselling and acclaimed Easy Learning series, perfect for students and anyone wishing to improve their language skills. It also includes ePhrasebooks which enable travellers to look up whatever they need to find on their Kindles and iPads, and two Scrabble eBooks comprising tips and advice by top international players which help Scrabble fans to better their scores and game-plans.
