The partnership brings Bookmate's mobile social reading service to readers in each market through its integration with the mobile operator, with Bookmate expanding into a further four Latin American markets throughout 2015.
In parallel Bookmate also launches its self-publishing service with an initial collection of more than 20,000 self-published Spanish language ebooks.
The Latin American ebook market is forecasted to reach $100 million by the end of 2016 and with high levels of smartphone penetration and mobile reading across the region this provides a good market for Bookmate to introduce its mobile reading service.
Paola Landazabal, Bookmate's Latin American Regional Manager commented: "We are really excited to be launching Bookmate into Latin America and to have found such a strong local partner as Tigo Mobile in Guatemala and Paraguay.
Similarly, it is a pleasure to announce that Tigo users with 4GB postpaid plans will be able to enjoy Bookmate for free.
