The new rupee symbol

As you have heard, India has a new symbol for its currency. The positive aspect of this new symbol is that the Indian rupee has its own representation, rather than the generic "rupee" currency as used by many other countries as well.

To showcase that infibeam.com is focused on an Indian audience, we have quickly adopted this new symbol, and you can now see it everywhere on the infibeam.com pages :)

Now carrying more Regional Books!

Regional magazines and books are very popular in India, and we want to make these widely accessible to people everywhere.

After much work behind the scenes, we are making available several titles in Hindi, Sanskrit, Punjabi, Gujarati, Marathi, Telugu, Tamil, Bengali and several other languages.

The new section will include translations of classics and bestsellers, original fiction, journals, mythological texts, books on arts, folk culture and others, which are best enjoyed in their innate local language formats.

Please check out our regional books store at http://www.infibeam.com/Books/best-regional-showcase.html !

Infibeam now has a Marketplace For Used & Rare Books

Currently, Infibeam.com sells 70 lakh books on www.infibeam.com/Books/ . These books have a wide range of prices based on the international editions vs. Indian editions, hardcover vs. paperback editions, and so on.

We wanted to give even more wider selection and even better deals. How do we do that? By tapping into the used books market. This especially helps students, libraries, small companies and other cash-strapped organizations who wish to acquire these books.

You can see this in action by clicking on "new & used" link on any book page. Check it out now!

Here are some good examples of this in action:
