Google has launched its much-anticipated Google eBookstore, complete with an ereader app for Android (and one for iOS too). Users will be able to choose from more than three million titles – including hundreds of thousands for sale – made up of public domain classics and brand new bestsellers.

If you don’t have an Android 2.1+ or iOS device, you can use Google’s eBooks Web Reader for cloud-based ereading in the browser. The Google eBookstore is initially only available in the US.


  1. Google’s approach is to let you only have the right to read, not possess the book you buy.
    You can read if you have internet available.

    You do not have any storage options to read when you are traveling in your car, camping, in flight, on a cruise, during power outages, or where ever you must incure high internet access fees.

    I think if that is the option the value of their books, tanks.

    If I purchase a book I need to have it where and when I want to read.

  2. Since I have approval with the major Mobile Phone Manufacturer’s to development mobile phones under an approved U.S. Patent Application number awarded on Oct. 29, 2010, I hope Google can take down their reader from on-line advertising and allow me to distribute that product. In addition, a copy of a pre-release beta version of all new phones like the Nexus Phone is appreciated so that I and a team of mine can write reviews and mobile phone application notes. If anyone reading this would like to apply for a position, please contact me with your credentials to my post office box.
