    Is there any news regarding whether Penguin ebooks and audioibooks are going to be available in the near future for international partners? Similarly Macmillan and Simon & Schuster.

      Hi Alison,
      Thank you for your note. We are continuously striving to work with publishers to expand geographic availability. We will certainly communicate through our blog and other means as new titles and publishers become available. At this time, the Penguin titles for schools are only available in the United States.

    Great news for the US but shame the UK not included. I have a queue for The Fault in Our Stars paper copy and would love to have it as an eBook. Enjoy!
