Google Sells E-Books Now!

google opens online ebookstore

Are hardcover copies of the collective works of Charles Dickens, William Shakespeare, and Stephenie Meyer taking up too much space in your room? Looks like Google's got a solution!

In an effort to compete with Amazon and every bookstore in the world, Google has launched Google eBooks, which will feature hundreds of thousands of titles that you can read on your computer, as well as many tablets, smartphones, and other devices.

Here's what director of strategic partnerships at Google, Tom Turvey, had to say about the new venture:

"Publishers want more competition in the marketplace, and we already have a big investment. We're trying to extend the value of content that exists in the world by enabling people to find it and buy it."

We're interested to see how this plays out, but we're a bit concerned. Is Google still going to let us search for the Barnes and Noble website? How about Borders? They're getting PRET-TY powerful!

Will U pick up eBooks on Google?

    Given that Google will almost certainly have to accept the same Agency pricing situation as apple, amazon and everyone else I don't see that it's going to make much difference with regards to competition. It will be another place to buy ebooks but if every place is forced to charge the same because of Agency pricing then there is no competition.
