Amazon announced today that Jeff Kinney’s best-selling Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, published by Amulet Books, an imprint of ABRAMS, is coming to Kindle—offered digitally for the first time ever. Starting today, Kindle customers can pre-order the first six books in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series from the Kindle Store. The entire set will be available for purchase on October 30th, 2012.
In print format, the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series is the best-selling kids’ series this year, and “The Third Wheel (Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Book 7)” is the most pre-ordered kid’s title in 2012.
“It was important to Jeff and to Abrams that our Wimpy Kid ebooks offer the same visual experience as the print books,” said Michael Jacobs, President and CEO of Abrams. “We are pleased that our respective digital teams worked together to faithfully reproduce the print books’ familiar diary layout and illustrations in ebook format. We know readers will also enjoy the additional digital enhancements.”
