Some great news for bookworms out there! Kathalaya has introduced the first ever Nepali e-book reader app – “WeRead APP”. The app will feature books by Nepali writers and publishers in Nepali, English and other regional languages supported by the Devnagari script. You can get WeRead on iOS and Android!

As publishers, we feel it is important to recognize and expand the Nepali readership as best we can by promoting deserving writers and other publishers. WeRead app is an attempt to digitize Nepal’s literary works to make it accessible all over Nepal and the international market.
