With a selection of over 600 publishers across the globe, their growing library houses 1.25 lakh titles. a�?Whatever genre you pick, there will be vast choice,a�? Rajpal says, adding that romance, education, fiction, kids, travel and cooking are the more common genres while there is a section for religious, foreign languages and health books. GQ, Vogue, PC World, Femina readers too can get a piece of this pie. As can comic book lovers and gamers (think Call of Duty cheats!).

Already with a whopping 4.5 lakh users, Rockstand is quite user friendly for even non-techno followers. a�?It also lets users store their books on cloud equivalent space to read in offline mode, keeping in mind the availability of low space in Indian manufactured smart phones,a�? shares Rajpal, elaborating that they even allow users to connect to their mobile operator so they can pay for an ebook with talk time.
