Google Launches eBook Store

Google has officially launched their Google eBooks store for the U.S. with nearly 3 million free titles available for reading. Google eBooks are stored in the cloud to facilitate bookmarking and reading on multiple devices and platforms (except Kindle, As per Google: “Currently, Google eBooks are not compatible with Amazon Kindle devices, though we are open to supporting them in the future.”) Formats supported are ePub and PDF.

In addition to purchasing eBooks from Google, they will also be available through independent bookseller partners.

It’s hard to tell how many paid titles they have in the science fiction, fantasy and horor genres. It looks like not many, until you drill down and see way more.
