Google Launches Web’s Largest E-Book Store

E-book readers are the hot new item that everyone wants. They’re small, portable, help save the environment by saving paper, save on battery life and hold hundreds or thousands of books. Google has just released the largest e-book store on the web and carry both paid and public domain materials and is now a perfect resource for all e-reader owners!

While more contemporary books are available for a fee, be sure to also check out the best of free section highlighting popular stories like Pride & Prejudice, Moby Dick and The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, but you can find free books on any topic by searching and sorting by “free only.” As an example, here is a search on free short stories. Clicking on any of the books will allow you to read a sample, find out more about the book, or download it onto your computer, handheld device or e-book reader.

All books are accessible anywhere wirelessly and are compatible with web browsers, e-readers, handheld devices and more. If you begin a book on one device, you can pick up right where you left off on another.
