BookShout allows its users to legally import e-book purchases into Bookshout, free of charge, no matter where purchased

Oct 11 2012

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). Only books available for sale via BookShout will be aggregated (about 100,000 books). "Our agreements allow consumers to aggregate their books onto our platform. The publishers just want to make sure that the books have been purchased," explained BookShout founder Jason Illian.
