In a first of its kind move, Bengali audio book through a mobile phone app from Power Talking Books developed by Power Publishers will be revolutionizing book reading for the readers. To announce this initiative, a press meet was announced at The Press Club, Kolkata.
The app has a free and subscription section and is available at Google Play store for Android users initially and will soon be available in i-stores too.
The app will be beneficial for those readers who often do not get the time to read the books. They can listen to the stories even while travelling to and from their place of work. Many people who cannot read Bengali but can understand it will be able to listen to the stories. This is also helpful for the visually challenged people.
The app has a free section consisting of single short stories and a subscription section consisting of novels and short story collections by eminent writers. The subscription fee is Rs 200 annually.
Some of the writers whose works can be found in this app are Sunil Gangopadhyay, Sirshendu Mukhopadhyay, Suchitra Bhattacharya, Indranil Sanyal, Tridib Kumar Chattopadhyay, Ullas Mallick, Krishnendu Mukhopadhyay and others.
Various genres like horror, motivational, mystery, novel, romance, short story, suspense and science fiction will be available.
