While I’ve metaphorically trashed the Sony E-reader a couple of times when comparing it to the Kindle, a whole new world just opened up for the little device: Google has launched their new Google ebookstore, and they’re selling books in the e-pub format for Sony and Nook.
But the best news is that they’re making literally millions of public domain books available for free. Want to catch up on your Sherlock Holmes–maybe Dickens for Christmas? It’s going to all be there.
Better yet, Google executives have stated that while they don’t want to start a price war for the copyrighted works they sell, they do want them to be among the most competitive.
I predict a fall in the price of e-books with Amazon leading the way.
This will be fun!
