Google has created another milestone with the launch of world's largest eBook store with 3 million titles to begin with -- many of them free -- to any device with a web browser in the United States.
The Google eBook store is based on an open platform. As a result one doesn't need Android platform to read their favourite book as most of the devices are compatible with Google eBooks including smartphones.
With the new Google eBooks web browser, one can buy, store and read Google eBooks in the cloud. Which means you can access your eBooks like you would access messages in Gmail or photos in Picasa--using a free, password-protected Google account with unlimited ebooks storage.
Current collection includes the latest bestsellers like James Patterson's Cross Fire and Jonathan Franzen's Freedom, and the classics like Great Expectations, A Tale of Two Cities and Gulliver's Travels.
Apart from that, Google has also launched free applications for Android and Apple devices, which will make it possible to shop and read on the go.
These applications will allow users to select which font, font size, day/night reading mode and line spacing suits according to their taste. Application will also allow you to pick up on the page where you left off when switching devices.
Currently available only in United States, these eBooks can be bought either from Google eBook store or from Google's independent bookseller partners like Powell's, Alibris and participating members of the American Booksellers Association.
Google e Books was first launched in 2004. Since then, it has digitized more than 15 million books from more than 35,000 publishers, more than 40 libraries, and more than 100 countries in more than 400 languages. This repository of knowledge and culture will continue to be searchable through Google Books search in the research section alongside the eBook store.
