eBooks just got more game

At long last Google announced the long anticipated launch of Google eBooks. More options for more readers! The non-proprietary nature of the platform should be making Amazon nervous. It certainly changes the terrain for school libraries. As we all wait and wonder which way to jump Google eBook gives options.

Official Google Blog: Discover more than 3 million Google eBooks from your choice of booksellers and devices







The ubiquity of eBooks is indisputable.  Platforms and vendors have already changed gears and incorporated Google eBooks into their interfaces. As an example take a look at GoodReads which has already incorporated Google eBooks with comparison pricing from Barnes and Noble (Nook) and Amazon (Kindle) options.

We will be updating our wiki with news and information about Google eBooks and pushing it out via our CCHS LC Facebook Fan page and district email. More options for more readers using diverse devices sounds good to me!
