Views: 117

More than half a million public domain books from Google's digitization project will now be available for free on the Sony Reader in its e-book store.This has been made possible by a deal struck by Sony Electronics with Google. The Google deal is certainly a big endorsement for Sony that will boost them in the long run as Google expands its library.

Google's big book digitization project was recently green-lighted through a $125 million settlement in its lawsuit with the authors and publishers, who are now working with Google to offer in copyright books as previews or for sale in the search as well. It also launched a mobile version of its book search in February that allows for anyone with an iPhone or Android phone to read the collection.
