We've assembled the world's biggest range of commercially published books suitable for the Sony Reader
Perth, WA (PRWEB) July 30, 2008
eBooks.com, the web's leading ebookstore, announced today that it has amassed a huge collection of published ebooks ready for downloading to Sony's ebook PRS-505 device. Until now, owners of a Sony Reader Digital Book have been confined to the collection of titles available direct from Sony's own ebookstore, or from Borders.com. On Thursday, Sony released a software upgrade that enables users to download ebooks in the ubiquitous Adobe format.
"We've assembled the world's biggest range of commercially published books suitable for the Sony Reader," said Stephen Cole, CEO of eBooks.com. "The vast majority of ebooks available from eBooks.com are from major commercial publishing houses. We're keen to enable self-published authors to upload their books to boost the number of titles in our repository -- as some sites do -- but we haven't built that capability yet. The result is that our collection of ebooks is almost entirely made up of books published by the world's leading book publishers."
Academic and Professional Books
In addition to its acclaimed range of popular fiction and non-fiction ebooks, eBooks.com's collection of Sony-compatible titles includes a substantial choice of academic and professional texts from publishers such as Wiley, Springer and Elsevier.
eBooks.com is a division of Ebooks Corporation, a company that has specialized in the production and distribution of digital books since 1997. The company has partnerships with 450 publishers, including the world's leading trade, professional and scholarly publishers. The company has a multi-channel market strategy, distributing its collection of over 130,000 titles to consumers via the retail portal, eBooks.com, and to academic and research institutions via EBL: The eBook Library. Ebooks Corporation also provides advisory and technical services to global book publishers and retailers.
In addition to being able to download a full copy of books they've bought, eBooks.com customers are able to access the full text of books in their online bookshelf from any computer, anywhere.
