Children's publisher Capstone Young Readers and Epic!, a kids’ e-book subscription service, announced a distribution agreement that will make 500 Capstone titles available through the Epic! digital service. Epic! offers subscription access to more than 3,000 kids’ e-books for $9.99 a month.
Launched earlier this year, Epic! is a subscription e-book service for children that offers unlimited access to a variety of books. The service offers a book recommendation engine, offline reading, data on reading, rewards and gamification. But the service does not offer multimedia content and emphasizes its utility for reading.
Among the 500 Capstone Young Readers e-book to be made available through Epic! are licensed titles from DC Entertainment, Sports Illustrated for Kids, Tony Hawk Inc. and Warner Bros. Consumer Products.
Suren Markosian, CEO & cofounder of Epic!, said “We're pleased that Capstone has chosen to partner with Epic! in our mission to get children excited about reading.”
