SAO PAULO (AP) - Online retailer Amazon has started selling physical books in Brazil, two years after it began selling books in digital format in Latin America's biggest country.

In a statement posted on the company's website, CEO Jeff Bezos says Amazon's new service will offer more than 150,000 titles in Portuguese starting Thursday.

Amazon started selling e-books in early 2012, with a catalog of 13,000 titles. Today more than 35,000 titles are available in Portuguese, along with the more than 2 million in other languages.

Alexandre Szapiro is Amazon Brazil's vice president. He tells the G-1 news portal that by the end of the year, e-books will have a 5 percent share of the country's book market.
