Google eBookstore opens

Dec 06 2010

Today, Google has finally opened its much talked about online bookstore with over 3 million titles available for free plus hundreds of thousands available for purchase.

Google supports Android, iOS, Nook, Sony readers, and other devices with automatic page syncronization across all devices.

Already, many independent bookstores are signed up to offer Google's eBooks for sale. Each participating retailer controls their pricing of non-agency books.

According to eBookNewser, Indie bookstores are very excited about the possibilities from the new Google eBookstore, indeed Christine Onorati, owner of WORD, an indie bookstore in Brooklyn, sold their first eBook in the first hour after Google’s launch.

Gayle Shanks, owner of Changing Hands Bookstore, in Tempe, AZ says, "we know our tech savvy customers want to continue to support their local indie store and now they will be able to when they want an eBook rather than a hard copy. It’s very exciting and a nice adjunct to our bricks and mortar storefront."
