BookShout, a social reading and book retail application, is introducing new technology that will allow its users to legally import their previous and future e-book purchases into their BookShout account, free of charge, no matter where they were purchased.
BookShout is an independent e-book retailer. Currently, about 250 publishers offer titles for sale on BookShout, including four of the Big Six American houses (Penguin and S&S are not involved).

The publishers just want to make sure that the books have been purchased," explained BookShout founder Jason Illian.
