Online giant Amazon is set to put up around 500 Assamese books for sale. For the first time ever, books from five popular publication houses of Assam, Jyoti Prakashan, Banalata, Purvanchal, Banphool and Aank-Baak will be available on Amazon.
Writings of writers like Birendra Kumar Bhattacharya, Dr Bhabendranath Saikia, Mamoni Raisom Goswami, Homen Borgohain, Mahim Bora, Dr Lakshmi Nandan Bora, Dr Hiren Gohain, Nilamani Phukan etc will be available for purchase. This move will enable Assamese readers outside the region to have access to their favourite books easily. In the initial stage, 500 books will go on sale and then the numbers will increase gradually.
