There are some exclusive titles in the store as well such as "Love, Life and a Beer Can" by Prashant Sharma, and "Reality Bites; a not so innocent Love Story" by Anurag Anand.

"We are proud to launch this new Kindle store for Indian customers - offering Kindle book purchases in rupees and the ability to buy and read the work of many great Indian authors," said Russ Grandinetti, vice president of Kindle Content, Amazon.com.

Originally announced in 2007, Amazon has released a total of four generations of the e-reader until now. The latest generation Kindle Touch model features a 6-inch E-ink touch display, 4GB on-board storage and Wi-Fi/3G connectivity.

Apart from the availability of India Kindle Store and Kindle e-reader in India, the retail giant has also launched Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) for independent authors and publishers in India. KDP is easy way for authors and publishers to make their books available to Kindle customers in India and around the world on both Kindle devices and free Kindle reading apps.
