Tech eBooks Party says if it has a fairly complete platform, including electronic reading device, a regular online bookshelves filled by the user's personal content, content sales and Internet-based Conductor systems, and content conversion and publishing tool.
Google itself has a digital bookstore titled eBookstore which can be visited through books.google.com address. Here there are hundreds to thousands of books from leading publishers such as Macmillan, Random hous, and Simon & Schuster.
All of these new books can be downloaded to users in the U.S. alone. But Google promises eBookstore next year will expand to the whole world.
Google's own e-books can only be read online through any device, whether a computer connected to the internet or via the free application in the gadget kind of iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch, or Android-based smartphone software.
