Amazon has announced that it is launching Arabic language books across the Kindle ecosystem. The e-tailer has already compiled a selection of around 12,000 Arabic books which includes titles such as Al Aswad Yaliko Biki and Harbo Alkalbi, and works by popular authors such as Naguib Mahfouz and Nizar Qabani.

Discussing the launch of Arabic language books on the platform, David Naggar, VP of Kindle, said:

“We are excited to make Arabic language Kindle books available to the hundreds of millions of Arabic speakers around the world. This is another step in our ongoing work to provide more choice and selection to readers.”

Arabic language books support all the features that we’ve been using in other languages for years including access to book samples before purchase, having the ability to look up words in dictionary, being able to make customisations to the text size, margin settings, and background colour. You can also still search text inside a book and use the highlight feature.

If you know how to read Arabic and want to grab some books just head over to existing Amazon websites and navigate to the Kindle Books section and then go to Arabic Books under foreign languages.
