Google eBookstore Launches In The UKWritten by John Thompson on October 6, 2011 · Filed under Internet
Love e-books but hate being tied down in an eco-system? Me too, and until now my only realistic option in the e-book market has been to use Amazon’s Kindle store and then remove the DRM from my purchased items so that I can read them on any devices that I may own in the future.
Thanks to Google’s eBookstore, however, there is some more choice available, which can only be good for consumers. Until now, it was only available in the USA, but today it has finally launched in the UK as well.
Although it’s not as comprehensive as Amazon’s Kindle Store, titles on Google’s book store include bestsellers, such as ‘One Day’ by David Nicholls and Jeffery Deaver’s ‘Edge’, so there’s bound to be a lot of titles available that will interest you.
All of the books that you purchase will be stored in the cloud, and can be read using a web-connected device such as your laptop, smartphone, or supported e-book readers.
If you want to check the store out for yourself, you can head over to Google’s e-book site right now to start downloading titles.
