Google eBookstore Lauches

On Monday Google eBookstore launched. Google says it’s larger than any other ebook store on the Internet. The site has lot of ebooks one pays for, but 2.8 million of Google’s e-books are free and out-of-copyright. The ebooks can be read on almost any device so you’re not locked into one device like the Amazon Kindle for example. Large publishers can except a 70-30 revenue split with Google. Meaning Google gets their hands on 30% of the profits.  Smaller book companies can sell on Google. Companies that have signed on so far include: Powell’s Books, Alibris and the American Booksellers Association. If this will do one thing I think this will launch sales of cheap ereaders into the stratosphere. The fact that Google ebooks can be read on any device is a game changer in this industry.
